    That is going to be hard to find. You may have to contact a prop shop and see if they can find a hub and make one for you.

    should be. Look straight into the shaft where the prop goes and if it has slots in the housing I would say yes then,

    Take a picture of your lower unit looking straight into the shaft and post it.

    I should add its everything from the shaft on the inside down to a stainless steel prop. so after looking at them on ebay I am not sure what to do here. any advice would be great. I am not fixing the other boat the ravencrest its 3 grand just for the engine.

    My own opinion is that you are wasting your time on that Chrysler engine. Parts are hard to be located on that engine. Sorry

    I'm thinking the engine might be a 78 instead of a 73 both the boat and the trailers are 78's found some numbers on the prop it has a389265 stamped on it and 13X15 on the outside of the prop. Any idea where I can get that prop and also how can I tell what model engine this is?

    That prop can be reconditioned by a prop shop. If you're having difficulties obtaining one outright, I think I'd get that one fixed, JMO
