Solas impeller question
Got a repicthed 14/19 Solas impeller from PPG.
Brand new wear ring, if I stab it out of the hole, it cavitates real bad. Top RPM's went down from 8,000-8,100 to 7,800-7,900.
Would too steep of a pitch make it cavitate?
My stock impeller never did this. At first I thought it was a wear ring, I changed it and it still cavitates out of the hole......

I don't know what it is about Solas. I had mine repitched twice from PPG with zero improvements, actually, lost top speed and RPM's so I will stick with the stock! The stock prop kicks it's A**

I sent my Solas 14/19 to dave at Impros to have it trued and balanced to 14/19. I have the Riva stage 1 minus wedge, R&D intake, (ocean rider) PPG power pipe, Iridiums, trued ride plate, Riva Sponsons, NOPAS and GPS at 72.1. That prop pulls like a SOB. Cant wait to install SC impeller

jeff mine would cavitate like hell out of the hole with all new stuff, then I found out that my carbon seal was worn out and sucking air from the hull. After I had it done, almost none out of the hole.

When you want your props done right, send them to a pro..Dave at Impros, not a hit or miss shop !!

How do I get a hold of Dave at Impros?
I would like to get a repitch, but what is the cost of a repitch if I did not buy the prop from Dave?
