thrust washer/hub kit

Hello, 

 

I have a one year old Alumacraft Competitor Sport 175 with an Etec 115 long (25-inch) shaft model (E115DGXAFH  S.N. 5478459), which I am still trying to find the correct prop for.  Over the winter I picked up a couple used SS (One is a Viper, the other is stamped SST) with the (I believe according to a BRP propellers/quick reference guide) correct part numbers for my motor.  

 

1) The Viper is stamped 176626 (current p/n 763914 ???) is 14 3/4 X 17 

2) The SST is stamped 176617 (current p/n 763918 ???) is 14 3/4 X 19

 

My questions are:

Should I replace the complete hub kit due to the age of these props?

The thrust washer's outer diameter presently (Turning Point propeller) used does not appear to be sufficient for the Evinrude props - what would be the correct part number for the appropriate thrust washer?

 

Thanks for this and any other advice in figuring out the right prop.  I love the Etec but would like to be able to get a bit more than 5400 RPM (+-) at WOT.

Using the factory correct hub, thrust washer and prop hardware is very important for the Viper. We cannot advise you on non-Evinrude props or parts.

 

You do want your engine to run in the 5600-6000 rpm range at full throttle for best results and longevity.

thank you for your reply.  I do realize that the correct hub kit is essential.  I was likely not clear in my question but this is precisely why I asked it.  

 

The used props are both Evinrude parts and I am asking for the correct Evinrude part numbers for hub kit/thrust washers to use with these props on my Etec 115 long shaft.

 

Thank you

Re: thrust washer/hub kit

I realize using the factory correct parts is essential, hence my questions.

 

I am not asking for any advise to utilize non-Evinrude part.

 

Exactly,  my reason for wanting to test these other props is precisely to attain the most desireable RPM.

I think you will find what you need starting on page 10. Sorry it took so long to get this to you.
