Selling my Acme 1285 14.5 x 14.25 .105 cup, spline. It's coming off an Xstar MCX 350. Prop has less then 25hrs on it and is perfect. I'm selling because I have two of the same and am going to run a cheaper back up.

$400.00 OBO + buyer shipping

Too bad, I just bought the same prop new. Searched for months first for a used one. :(

Just looked them up on ACME...they are all on sale right now...

Is this the prop everyone is running on the X-Star with the MCX? How does it change the boat? Better response down low with weight? I am assuming lower top speed as well.

It's about $520 new + shipping.

Mine is $400 OBO :-)

I am running mine on a star with the MXC.

The prop is a monster! It gives you a such and improved hole shot, I'm running PWT + another 500 in the bow, get's the boat up on plain great. Changes the top end for sure, I dont know how much I never really watched how fast my boat went before. I generally stay around 35mph when I'm running to the other side of the lake. From what I've heard it's about a 3-5mph difference.

I ride at 25mph, RPM's with the 1285 are about 4100 at that speed. I really don't know what they are with a stock prop, I only drove my rig once with the stock prop and PWT, thought it sucked and got a new prop the next day. At 25mph and no ballast they are around 3400-3500 with the 1285.

I have an Acme 1593...

That is a 14.5 X 16 splined shaft prop. It has only been used twice. Never reworked. $600 when it was new. It needs to go this summer.

Send me a Private message if interested.

Tall, you get the water leak figured out on the BU?

No. But have not tried yet. I had a leak in my MC for over 2 years and no one could figure it out....I will eventually get around to searching for a leak.

So did I. Send me a PM when you figure out the small stuff. Have you checked shaft packing drip, yet?

No, I haven't even stuck my head under the back seat to see if it is obviously coming from there, but will see if I can remember to take a gander tomorrow.

I just dumped $500 on new trailer master cylinder, solenoid and a broken brake line. Since this is an MC site, I am sure to state that the MC trailer was light years ahead of the Extreme trailer I have now on the bu. 2 X 4 vs. 2 X 6 bunks, just a better pull overall. I could do without the fiberglass fender that costs $1200 anytime you get a blown tire, but the rest was wonderful.

Shameless plug for my prop on Ebay. Works great with anything but the MCX, it is just a little bit too much prop for that.
