A Rebel prop has a large blade area and is recommended for exceptional fuel economy at cruising speeds.  Normally to attain similar rpm to an average propeller, select one with 2" less pitch. In your case a 17" Rebel would be a good starting point.

Always use the proper service manual for your motor, up-to-date service literature, the correct tools, and have an understanding of how to proceed with troubleshooting and repair methods.
