over here it's a "knuckleskinner" we have many of them.

Maybe for your old prop it was for balance, as you say there is no other logical reason to have an offset peice of metal


On the new prop it may not needed it as it may be balanced, it still needs a wash

Give it a spin, see if she wiggles, the engine that is

The old prop was just as symmetrical etc as the new one - if it needed that raised piece i would have had the same issue as i have now - which way to orientate it.

I am pretty sure that its too close to the centre to have to much of an effect on balance anyway.

I have just been out and spun the thing up in my driveway looking for any vibration - but i cant feel any up to about 3k RPM - didn't fancy running it dry at any higher revs than that.

I guess it will remain one of the mysteries of the universe...

My guess would be that it is a block for a locking star type washer, which is apparently not used anymore. Just a guess, though.

There's no way that little bit of metal so close to the centre is going to noticeably shake your engine.

Get out the fekin angle grinder and then you'll be rid of the worry....
