    Need Old Prop for Engine Dyno

    Hi all
    Just wondering if someone (Aus based) could help us with an old RXP prop.
    We are fitting an RXP engine to our engine dyno and looking at how to connect it to the brake.
    After searching for CV joints with the same spline as the factory shaft we have given up and now think the easiest way to go is get an old prop and machine it down to weld onto a flange that will bolt to the dyno head.

    So if someone has got something then drop me a PM or if anyone has done this a different way and has any suggestions I would welcome them as well.

    Our intention is to test the 4tec engine in std form then bolt on the various mods that you can buy.
    We have at this point the mini Rude and Rude 3 and of cource our plug in system.

    Should be interesting.

    Cheers

    It has always made me wonder why no one dyno'd previous 4-strokes?

    Glad to see it's being done and props for trying.

    I just removed a Solas 14/19 from an RXP, it is damaged, but repairable.

    I was gonna send it away, but may be able to help.

    I am off to a "place where" I might have a duff OEM one in my hands in about 3 hrs time.

    Failing that, I will have a duffer tonight for sure.

    If this helps?

    Actually, I do have right now, an OEM in my grips.

    Hey that sounds good
    If you can find a dud one later today then that would be awesome.
    Let me know and I will get a courier to collect it.

    Cheers

    impeller

    Just an FYI

    I have machined a rxp impeller to use as a nose cone fixture - the interupted cuts and the hardness of the impeller suck. Best bet would be to plasma cut the blades off and then turn it.

    Best of luck - I have a drawer full of them as most around the world do.
