spare prop

Des
I picked up my repaired prop today, i was also working on a customers boat in the same place, i tried my prop on his outdrive and it fitted perfectly, even has the same direction of rotation, the outdrive was a BMW, also talking to the chaps who repaired my prop, they said a single prop Volvo would also fit, all you need is to make a new spacer for the back of the prop, but i would think the Volvo one would fit.

Ian, Is this the same idea as the spacer washer that is used behind the prop on the sternpowr leg ? Or a more complicated idea?

Hi Des
yes it is the same thing, but might have to be moded to leave correct gap between prop and leg casting.

Just e mailed Steel Developments asking them to reply to this thread as I see they are selling new Volvo props at 140 which makes a nice change from Lancing at 296.

Now if they brought say a 23 and a 25 down to Ribex we could all have a go to see the difference.

Scary Des, yep France sounds good to me. You can get a lot of Vino under the deck of a Pacific. @ 1 LPM (Red desiel not wine) then thats France and back for 50.

BMW props

Hi there

Re props to fit the BMW leg. There are two basic types of propeller to fit the BMW.

Series 1 BMW
This is a short hub propeller and any volvo short hub prop will fit directly onto the drive, there is no need for any additional spacers, you use your existing fitting kit. The props are 150 + VAT

Series 2 BMW
This is a long hub propeller. You can fit the volvo type prop but you need an additional spacer, this takes up the extra shaft length. We can supply either a long or short hub volvo prop the choice would depending on the type and size of engine. The short hub is suitable for petrol engines up to about 130hp whereas the long hub is recommended for larger petrol engines and all diesels, this is due to the larger rubber bush. We have spacers available from stock for either the long or short hub. The spacer is 55.00+VAT this enables you to use any volvo SP type propeller. The spacer fits between the drive and the prop and then you use your exiting fitting kit to complete the securing of the propeller. With the spacer you have a much wider range of propellers some of the choices are,

Short hub prop 150+VAT
Solas 3 blade alum long hub @ 135+VAT
Volvo 3 blade alum long hub 185+VAT
Solas 3 blade stainless steel long hub @ 250+VAT
Solas 4 blade stainless steel long hub @ 299+VAT


Hope that information helps

Any queries please do not hesitate to contact me

Sternpower propellers

If the drive is a sternpower, the number of splines is the same a volvo so you can fit this type of propeller with a spacer, but the Volvo props are much smaller in diameter so I don't think they would be a good choice for you. If you are interested in a prop for a sternpower, let me know the diameter x pitch & rotation you want and I will get you a price

P22 with a thernpowr 101 leg

Hi Julie
The sizes I have for this propeller is:- Splined area is 1 1/8th" dia 2 1/4" long 17teeth, end thread 7/8-9 UNC x1

Prop size 16.75" x 21"pitch Left hand the part number from Michigan wheel is SMC807

But I know some prefer different pitch, not absolutely convinces of the pitch because the engine seams to be running at 2700 to 2900 rpm at WOT. Having said that I am told that the tacho is adjustable? Would welcome any advice. Des

Sternpower Propellers

Re 16.3/4x21LH prop
Michigan do not produce this propeller any more but there is an equivalant available the price 265.00 + VAT

Re fitting a Volvo propeller, this is possible but you have to change the whole fitting kit and an adaptor set is 119+VAT. However Volvo propellers are smaller in diameter, the nearest is 16"x21" (this size is priced at 185+VAT)
