Bronze Bore Reducers

Hello:

I lost my prop and it is hell getting a replacement due to 30mm shaft... I found one but the bore is 1.25". They are recommending a "bronze bore reducer". My understanding is generally it is frowned on using them due to you can get some wobble and possible damage the transmission. It seems to me if it is bronze and has a tight fit I should be okay?

Any advice helpful - Thanks...

Keep looking for the correct prop. That is a work-around, and not the best option.

Bronze Bore Reducers

General Propeller in FL, had a good section of props available last April.

In the past I have called Michigan Wheel and asked which dealer had recently ordered the prop I needed.
