Re: Black smoke in exhaust while in gear > 2000RPM
Engine manufacturers don't know squat about props, but as I said, if you go on the prop manufacturer's websites they can get you there. But you are going to have to know about your boat, engine and the reduction gear of the trany, if any. Also you need to know the taper of the shaft, the size of the key way and shaft diameter to order a prop.
7 to 11 inches of pitch is a huge range! A prop shop can maybe tweek a prop an inch or two of pitch, so you'd best be a lot closer than 7 to 11 inches.
