Laser II Prop on a Volvo Sterndrive?

I have recently purchased a new boat, a Glastron GX 185 with 4.3/Volvo SX, and it will of course be coming with the disposable aluminum prop.  I have a leftover 3 blade Stainless Quicksilver Laser II (48 16550 A41 25P) which is very ventilated and in like-new condition.  I would like to try this prop on the Volvo outdrive.  Is there a kit or adaptor or new hub I can use to do this?  If I can learn what to ask for, I can then take it or send it to a prop shop and hopefully get a useable prop.  Thanks very much.

Jim,

The only way the laser will fit your Volvo is if the prop has the removable hub. If the hub is removed, it can be replaced with the kit to fit the Volvo drive from your local Mercury dealer. It comes as a complete package, and instructions are self-explanatory. If your prop has the pressed in hub, you are out of luck, as the Volvo hub is slightly larger and does not press into the Mercury prop.
