Wanted: 59x29 prop

Postby P Pilot » Mon Oct 02, 2017 3:49 pm

I'm looking for a 59x29 prop for my VP1.

Apparently a common size used on motorfalkes and the like.

Anybody have one and willing to sell?

P pilot, just a word of advice....do NOT use any other prop but a WOOD prop on any VW engine.With carbon fiber props there are harmonics at play that build up fatigue in the cranckshaft, and it breaks after 15 hours.
Believe me, been there , had the forced landing.....
Only if one is 100% sure there is a Chromolly cranckshaft in the engine ,and there is the Revmaster type main bearing in the front end of the case, then you can use a carbon prop.
What happens to one does not matter, how one deals with it does.
