What size prop do you have? Also, there should be a tag on the tranny that should tell you.

Look at the Borg Warner tag on top of the transmission and it will state on the tag, 1:1 or 1.5:1.

What is the wax rope for? Maybe a dumb question but I've never heard of a wax rope with relation to the tranny.

It goes around the shaft where it exits the hull. I.E. packing nut, packing, shaft seal, stuffing box, you get the idea.

limited time.

All of the above is correct. 1/4" for 1:1. 3/16 for a 1.52:1 (power slot).
