. I’ve read a post or two on this forum to know you have been running Andy’s twin for awhile. I’m sure you know how to check your negative angle in relation to the points of Andy’s hull which should be level. But, to achieve -6 you would have to bend the tube upward and back down to get this and maintain prop depth. Is this what you have done? If so, I’m sure it is a short bend towards the back of your boat. Andy’s engines are usually mounted on 5 degrees and if you ran the shaft straight all the way to the prop , it would be very deep, that is why you have to reduce the angle to get the strut depth.
Hi Jeff in experimenting with these new props at first had a little trouble with trying to just get the angle at the strut after finding a good angle I pulled the hole strut off the transom and bent the tube to accommodate the new strut angle to take the stress off the shaft tube.
Works fine and haven’t changed the strut depth. Have done this on two twins two 45s and one 90 like I have said -4 to -6 def is where I end up at with the ski -4 with out a ski -5 or -6.
Mr. Schafer sent the props. Tried them at half a deg. N. G..put heavy load on the engines and they quit immediaty. Spoke to Schafer he stated 1 to 2 deg is sufficeint
What he suggested is cut the middle of pad out so to get more adjustment. Got my 1667 finally runing with a bar cut and cutting the dog ears off reducing the load,
boats moving nicely . Rich b.
