What was the recommended pitch/diameter VS the pitch/diameter combo that West by North set your prop to?

I'm thinking that I want my new prop to be slightly oversized and then just run the engine at lower RPM. 3000 RPM for a Diesel engine is very fast; and most Perkins 4-108 owners tend to run their engines in the 2200-2400 RPM range at hull speed.
