Re: Fuel tank venting question.

I wouldn't call it redneck, they actually drilled and tapped the aluminum sending unit instead of trying same on the thin plastic tank.

Re: Another prop question

If this is your first Michigan prop, you'll need their hub kit matched for your motor. What is your motor's recommended maximum RPM? If it's ~6K RPM and you can pull 5800 RPM with a 17 pitch prop, 11 pitch is a big jump. I wonder if you have a spun prop/hub - or something else is not right. My DF90...

Re: Another prop question

Okay checked prop, it is aluminum 3 blade, 13.25 x 17

So is the aluminum 4 blade 13.875 x 11 the right choice? seems to be big difference between pitch altho I would have an extra blade....

No wonder there are 1 gazillion threads on props across the interwebz :mrgreen:
