    I have the above motor on a 14' 6" 1976 CFM. She runs like a scalded dog and gets up on plane quickly. However the factory aluminum prop is getting a bit chewed up around the edges. I am told that it is a 9.5 x 10. This old prop has a rubber hub and has shear pins instead of drive teeth and is locked into place with a threaded nut with a cotter key. Do I have any other options other than an OEM type prop? I have yet to find a stainless prop that use a shear pin. Any suggestions from you fellas???

    I haven't found anything other than the OEM prop for that year.

    Something many on here have been trying to bury into my skull...

    "If it ain't broke, don't fix it!"

    Just get a new stock prop. I'm sure you'll be happy :)

    michigan wheel used to make after market props, but now you're best chance of getting one would be a used on ebay. PropCo also makes a prop for your motor, but I've never used one, so I can't comment on it. And while the 76 came with a 9x10, the 77 came with a 9.25x11 so you may have some room there in choosing a prop.
