    Hi There I Don't Use The Numbers Our The Letters On The Hubs Our Props To Set The Props. I Use A Digital Level That You Can Get From Sears There About A Foot Long. And I Bring The Prop Up On A Left Hand Rotation on The Right Hand Side Of The Cage And Find A Spot That I Can Use To Bring The Next One To And Put The Digital Level On Th Out Side Edge Of The Prop And That Is Where We Are Getting The 77 Degrees Set That Prop And Bring The Next One Up And Set It There In The Same Spot. Sorry Wanted To Explain Where We Were Getting The 77 Degrees, Me I Like Max Setting about 4800 RPMs I Can Cruise 3300 3400 Around 32 MPH Max I Had Mine At 52 MPH The Other Day And My Boat Is Heavy 3500# Our More

    Default Digital Level

    I've learned from Skip, the digital level tech and its easier and faster than using the marks and tring to get yout head inside to the marks.

    Skip has the ultimate playground at his door. The boat ran great, she loves wet grass and scoots right along.
    Had to use a little a throttle to run dry ground, Loved it!

    Skip, I was at sears looking for those things. They have a angle gage, about a foot long, with a angled blade that opens out like on a pocket knife, cost $110. Is that what you are talking about. Then, do you bring up the prop and use the level to make the prop level, then use the angle gage to measure the pitch. Just checking to see if that is how you are doing it to get each blade the same pitch. Then, if that is what you are doing, somebode like me, cheap and simple, I think I could do the same thing with a level on the blade to postion it, then using the $10 protractor they have to check the pitch. Don't know if I adjust my pitch often enough to warrent $110 for the tool. Bud

    OK, thank you. so as long as the prop is in the same postion, you can put the level across the tip of the blades and it will show the degrees. I've never used or even seen anything but the bubble level. I'll pick on of those up. Bud
