    16-3/4x 24. rolls choppers.
    like them. tie bar let go and damaged the RH prop and I am looking for either a replacement or a new set of 4 blade choppers. Its a V bottom so Cleavers will provide no bow lift.

    I do gave a set of choppers, but they are 18X21 (I think)

    They might work better than the ones you have now.

    More diameter=less slip=less pitch needed. More diameter might give you more bow lift too.

    Three or four blade? 19 Spline?
    How much? I know you want to sell the but maybe I could try before I buy? I would pay you something and pay the freight both ways as well.
    Thanks in advance.

    BTW, there is a great looking Harley on eBay,

    My friend loaned me a set of Rolla Choppers 18 X 18 three blade 19 spline 4" hub. I ran and got on plane but had no top end. I would really like to try these props.

    Harley 42 1994 different dan older models???

    Dear Guys,
    I'm new at the forum.
    Do some body have info if the newer (1994 foot ) Harleys have difference with older models.

    Bought one as project(twin 350 hp 3116 cats Turbo)
    It has the older type 3 blade propellors.(NOT ARNESONS)
    Does any body know what cruise speed and top speed are when they left the factory.??
    I'll try to post a picture in my next post.Regards
    malvin

    Malvin I did not know Harley made a 42 up until 1994 but then again I don't keep up with them. My 42' is a 1987. I ran 3116 CATS @ 350 HP for about 10 years with Arnesons. Might have seen 40 knots once or twice but more like 38 knots top,,, cruise 30 knots. I put 3500 hours on them and still sold for 1/2 what I paid for them. I now have CAT 3126 @ 420 hp. Had these for almost 12 years and 1200 hours..

    Thx Steve,, whats up?? How was ur boating summer? Mine was Ok- longest trip was out the Chesapeake Bay to Outer Banks NC-Oregon Inlet and back up ocean to OC MD.. 500 mile round trip. Have u taken any trips lately.? How is the boat running and what new stuff going on with it?
    For me not much this winter.. gonna sit out the Fla trip this year just abit of cabin upholstery, LED lights, about it. My props are going to Admiral in Tampa soon under direction from Ken Martin of Vancouver-he is Arneson man. That was older pic with no bow rail.. now back on. It is a safety thing for me.. My GF and I cruise a lot by our self, and that is a long bow out there with no rail... Although I would like to lower the height and powder coat white.. Whatcha think that would cost??
    Swamp??? where are you??

    Newer pic with rail
