Suzuki df140 propeller

Do any of you have a Suzuki propeller that I could borrow before I buy one that would suit a Suzuki DF 140.

My current prop is a 14x19 aluminium, it could do with a few more revs, not quite hitting 5800rpm.

I am looking to test a 14x18 stainless prop or for the performance folk out there an equivalent 14x18 prop.

Can offer a handsome handling fee

Thanks for the offer, not sure if it will fit and maybe too big at 14 3/4, who knows it might work, I know that propellers are an artform, keen to learn more and extract as much out of the hole and turn of speed as I can.

Hope to meet you on the next cruise, thanks for the response

when we fitted this prop it transformed the engine, with the standard ally prop we couldn't get the max revs, but now it's much better no idea if it will fit your engine, but I'm sure someone will know
