Hi
I am thinking maybe Monto Carlo, what is the largest prop you can swing (dia).

That is based on the drop of the prop strut, diameter of the prop shaft, horse power of the motor, gear ratio of your transmission, pitch of the prop, and other things I may not be aware of.

Glen L recommends 13" in the notes. 14" could be used depending on pitch and transmission ratios.
