  • New Prop for 99 Sport Star

    I am looking for suggestions for a new prop for my 99 MC Sport Star(95-97 Prostar hull) with TBI 350 1:1 with Perfect Pass. I mostly use the boat for course skiing, but occasionally barefoot, and plan to get wakeboarding next year. I currently have a three blade 13x13 OJ, which I plan to keep as a spare.

    Thanks, Jamie

    unless you are trying to change the performance, i'd stay with the 13x13. go with a cnc'd acme or oj, you'll love it (so i've been told)

      VTJC,

      Call Jim Thelen at ACME (1-888-661-2263) and do the prop interview. He'll ask you a bunch of pointed questions to find out what you're after and he'll recommend a prop. Once you get the info from Jim email Schintz and see what kind of a deal he can get you. Most of the time he's got the best price.

      Good luck.

      I went from a 13 x 13 OJ 4 blade to a 13 x 12.65 Acme 3 blade and am very happy with the performance.

      I've got a 350 Hp LT1 with a 1:1 transmission

          I'll put in a late vote for the Acme. Some of the best money I've spent on the boat (have I said that before)?

          To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

            My friend's looking for spare prop for 97 205

            He has the standard 13x13 3 bladed prop. He's considering a 4 bladed prop. What size 4 bladed prop should he get. He wakeboards and barefoots. He has 275 HP engine with 1:1 xmsn.
            thanks

              If he's sold on a 4 blade, and isn't going with an acme 4 blade, then 13x13. For a CNC finished prop, the pitch could be lower. My father in law has a 13x13 4 blade oj on his 98 PS 205 with TBI (308 hp) engine and a 1:1.
