Does anyone have the specs for the original prop used on an Oday 34 with the Universal 5424 motor
Our 1982 Oday 34 came with a 15RH8 3-blade on it and another 15RH8 3-blade under the seat. However, when in gear
, I get white smoke, and if I rev the engine
above 2000 rpm
, it overheats.
I'm trying to figure out if the previous owner over-propped the boat
or if I have a low-compression or injector issue.
In normal conditions I can make about 5.5 knots at 2000 rpm
with little puffs of smoke. There's no smoke in neutral, only under load (unless I really rev it up high, then I can get lots of white smoke, but I think all engines do that).
Thanks for any help.
