Prop Sellection

Prop Sellection

I have 1979 C172N with the H2AD 160 HP motor. Last year when I rebuilt the motor, I installed a Power Flow exhasut system which increased HP to 182.

When I did the overhaul I did not change the propeller, but kept the same original prop a McCauley Fixed Pitch 74"

Just wondering if anyone had any suggestions on a propeller combination to use with the more powerful motor. Basically looking to carry more weight, better climb rates, etc. not increase speed.

Thank you

Re: Prop Sellection

You may also want to check the STC for the powerflow, that may show what propeller pitch is available to use, with your engine, but don't know if there is a gross weight increase allowed per STC.
