re. the prop pitch the number(s)are usually stamped on the hub - I have seen some (Yam?) where it is on one of the blades, and another (but ancient) where it was on the end of the hub.

Could you borow a prop of known pitch to re- test?

Yeah if it were ali I'd say that was a safe bet since they are cheap and brittle so people rarely modify them. But its stainless and might have been modified for racing or other purposes.

I agree on finding another prop of known pitch to test and/or marking the fly wheel and trying to eyeball the ratio.
