Look on the outer hub of the prop near the blades or inside the hub.

Most props are stamped with a series of numbers.

3 - Number of Blades (occasionally displayed)

16 - Diameter

24.5 - Pitch

R - Direction of Rotation (R = Right/Standard, L = Left/Counter)

Prop Pitch & RPM's

For safety, and efficient performance, it is critical that your engine operates within the RPM range recommended by the manufacturer.

A change in the prop pitch will increase or decrease the engine RPM's and can be used to bring them into the recommended range. A 2" pitch increase (for example, from 21" to 23") will result in approximately a 300-400 RPM decrease and vice versa.

The correct prop allows the engine's RPM to run within the top end of the manufacturers recommendation.
