    Hey Bubba,

    Last week I found a old two-bladed prop in my boat junk pile. I believe it came with a old boat and a 1968 50 HP Mercury motor that a friend gave me.

    I won't bore you all with the sad story about how much that dang "free" boat and motor cost me...just a person now would have to run real fast to give me any boat that has been sitting unused for 20 years!:crazy::crazy:

    Anyway, the number on the prop is #48-32190-11 (the last "1" is hard to read so might be something else), and measures 11-inches across the blades. There is a brass splined washer with the prop, it's number is 12-9200.

    Looks like there are 11 splines on the prop and washer, and it would fit a 5/8th inch shaft ( I think!).

    Can you or anyone else tell me what kind of prop I have, what it might fit, and does it have any value?

    Bill

    I'll take those numbers and run them and see what I can come up with. I can tell you this, its for a small horse power motor and the washer is what was used to take the space up on the splines to make sure the nut had a lock on the prop.

    The only 2 blade prop I can recall, was made for a 9.8 Merc.

    Not saying there weren't others, it's just what I can recall, with my limited intelligence:cool2:

    Thanks BobPaul.

    The prop was in a bow storage compartment on a boat that had a Mercury 50 motor, so I just thought it might be for that motor.

    It's dangerous when I start thinking!:crazy:
