Do you have the power slot transmission? What size is your prop shaft?

Yes I do. Is that prop made for any specific purpose? More hole shot? More top speed?

I know nothing about prop pitches and that sort of thing.

That prop came off a slot with a 240hp so I would assume its would be close to what you have now if you have a 1 1/8" shaft, I would call oj or acme to verify what they suggest.

That's the motor I have... the 351, 240hp PCM with slot trans and 1 1/8th shaft. I assume that's probably a good backup then. Sweet.

It should fit. 1-1/8" dia. shaft / keyed bore to fit the shaft. It's all stamped right there on the prop hub.
I am not so sure that the prop specs are what you may be looking for, for performance on your machine. It also looks like it has some rough times. If a prop has any nick or ding at all on the blades, it will make a difference in stellar performance and also put the rest of the drive train components at risk. Make sure it's what you want. Typically, $100 is what you'll get. It may need attention and balancing. Or it may be in perfect shape. I see a ding on the trailing edge of one of the blades.
