    Trying to find a prop for a 1/2 VW conversion. I’ve got one on order but backlog is months out. If anybody has one they would consider parting ways with if even only temporarily please let me know. Thank you!!

    Apparently Frank's running up to six months lead time. He's also trying to sell the business.

    Emailed and called couple times. No response. If anybody has a reliable way of getting ahold of him please let me know. I’d love to give my money to him

    What size prop do you need? I have a Tennessee Propeller that came with the 1/2 VW I acquired which is too long for my Hummelbird.

    Ideally a 54” in the low 20’s but I’d be happy with just about anything so I can run the engine to test it out. With the dual carbs I’m not sure what my horsepower or torque is going to be like
