I had my 1985 SnS out yesterday and I noticed some vibration. I took the prop off and there is some knicking and two of the blades are a little bent so I'm going to start by getting it fixed. This Prop is an OJ 13X13. Is that a stock prop and what rotation is it? It looks to be a 1 inch bore. I'd like to find a good spare. Do you think I should stick with the 13x13 pitch? It seems to be a pretty good all around prop. Thanks for any input. Ken

The prop info should be stamped on the hub face next to the prop nut or on the hub and yes it sounds like the stock prop for an '85 with a 1:1 transmission. Send it here for repairs, ttp://www.ojprops.com/services at http://www.ojprops.com/contact_us
While yur at it talk to Eric about a spare, Be prepared to give him any info he may need like, current prop info off the hub, the current altitude you use the boat at, baseline numbers of the speeds and RPM's for the current prop, boat model and year, engine size, transmission ratio, function (skiing, barefooting, surfing, boarding, tubing, etc.), ballast use, fuel load, gear, nominal # of passengers, etc. He will need it to determine the best prop for your application.

It will be stamped on the prop, LH or RH, but more than likely LH.

Bummer. I've looked everywhere on the prop for either an LH or RH and there is no marking. It only says OJ Legend 13X13-1 cup.

Post a picture and we'll tell you what rotation you have or look at this prop and if it's the same, it's LH,
