    I can't talk about it right now, it's being handled by the Postal Inspector. Those guys don't mess around!

    LMAO. They are both good, just got them and was wondering if Brett could translate the markings for me.

    Hey Old School, I hope all is well for you!

    Both props were built by a technician that worked for me at Mercury Racing in the 1990's.

    The LH was built in May of 1997 to a standard Lab (at that time spec.)
    The RH was built inJan. of 1999 to a standard Lab (at that time spec.)

    Of course nobody knows what's been done to them since then??? They are 4 blades so you can check the diameter.

    Take care and let me know if you want us to go through them.

    Thanks for the info Brett.

    I ran the props last weekend....and picked up 7 mph @ 4000rpm's!!!!! (64mph)

    ....but could only turn them to 5100 at WOT. They have been cut down to a diameter of 16.5 and I think are probably more than 31 pitch.

    My other set of props are a 16.5 diameter and a true 29 pitch. I run 57 mph @ 4000 rpm's and can get 6100 rpm's out of them at WOT.
