Thread: Prop question
04-11-2010, 12:29 PM #1
can someone take a look on these pictures and tell me whether this prop is a skat trak 15-20 ?
I have bought the ski used, and the guy told me that it is wearing the above-mentioned prop.
also can you tell me if I need to replace my wear ring ? is it weared out? i am a newbie and I cannot tell. I have read the other threads but each case is unique I guess so I need your
should I install a stainless steel ?

It is a skat for sure. Not sure about pitch. Take it out and see what it says on the side, Or if you cant take it out mabey try a small mirror to have a better look at its sides to see the 15/20. You will need to measure the clearance between prop and wear ring with a feeler gauge to see if tis worn out or not

is my prop in good condition ?
the prop seems to be almost in contact with the wear ring, besides one part that the wear ring is a little deeper. am I ok ?

dont do the war ring itss going to do the same thing....your blades on your prop are too long...they will just eat into the wearring like this over and over...believe me i did it...i havent had mine fixed yet but i still run 75 mph and mine looks te exact same as you

i guess so. I had it only one time in water and I hit with the mile meter of my ski 63 mph. (2003 GTX SC) . is that ok for a skat trak 15/20 prop and worx water grate ?
so I guess a stainless steel wear ring i not an option for me unless I get the prop fixed ?and what do I ask to the guy I take it to fix it ?

If you can see at least 7600 rpm you are ok.
Run it and have fun
