Prop for V-King

I have a 79 v-king 155 johnson commercial low compression engine runs super.  It's mounted all the way up on the jack plate and I run  the jack plate all the way up .Iím running a prop that is 14 1/4 X 21 I want to put a 4 or 5  blade stainless on. I was wondering on how much pitch I should go. Iím taching out at 5000 rpm @ 55mph. I think I should be doing way better than that. I would also like to know if you know were I can get atop rail for the wind shield

thanks a bunch.


Try a Merc 13 Ĺ x 22 Laser II (Merc Prop). Get the hub kit for it. This is a small hub 3 blade and will do wonders on your rig.
