Old prop ID

Postby Count » Sat Sep 22, 2018 9:25 pm

Picked this up at a flea market only because I thought it was unusual. Diameter is about 8 inches. It’s pretty thin aluminum and it seems to be from a small old motor. I don’t know what small motors used a three blade prop.

Look very closely at the inside of the hub on the circular flat area separated by the shear pin slot for the letters and numbers code. Find the code and I will look up the application .

Champion 4LHD models (7.9 or 8.5 HP depending on year) came with a small diameter 3 blade prop that looks a lot like that. Hard to tell for sure from the photos. I have a couple and I can take a couple pics for comparison if I can find where I put them.

This is a Johnson Motors prop.

I don’t think there are any numbers on it but I’ll take another look tomorrow.

Looks like a prop on 2 of my motors. 1 is a 37 Johnson 110 and the other is a 1940 Champion D2D Playboy.

FWIW

Below are photos of a Champion prop from a model 4LHD that I mentioned earlier. Comparing, it is a bit different than yours, the main thing being that the slot for the shear pin is recessed on yours.

this one is " ANTI clockwise " or a left rotating prop.
so this is a NO, I guess
I have a Champion with a "clockwise " prop, will check tomorrow
