1 INTRODUCTION Thank you for having chosen a MaxProp
feathering propeller for your vessel This instruction booklet is designed to
answer all your questions on assembly of the MaxProp Please read it
carefully and assemble the propeller at least once before installing it on your
Automatic Feathering Propeller 2 PITCH ADJUSTMENT This is a critical step make sure that you know
what pitch to set the propeller at either by your old propeller or by your
engine and reduction ratio
The pitch is adjustable from 10 to 30 degrees of blade angle
Figure 1 shows the conversion from inches of pitch to degrees of blade
Instructions To properly convert from inches to degrees follow steps A thru C
A Determine the diameter of your propeller
B Go down the column that corresponds to your propeller diameter until
THREE BLADE CLASSIC you find the desired amount of pitch
C Cross reference this pitch in inches to the blade setting angle directly
across the chart and you will have the desired blade angle

One thread can be exposed aft of either nut system if more than that are
showing it will be necessary to cut off the excess with a hack saw If too many
threads are exposed it will raise the central cone gear 6 and effect the
performance of the propeller
C On the bottom of the central gear 6 there is a groove on the bottom of one
of the teeth this represents the X on the chart in figure 3 Place the tooth
with the groove into the corresponding lettered gear on the hub 1

spinner is rotated before the blades are attached it will alter the blade angle I To make sure that the screws will not loosen insert a
116 stainless steel
cotter pin into the head of each screw Put them on so that if the screw were
to loosen it would hit the cotter pin as shown in figure 5 Cut the cotter pins
to a length of 14 and put them in A tight tap with a hammer on the head of
the pin will spread the ends open if not use a screw driver to spread them
no yes Make sure that the propeller is protected from galvanic corrosion by using On
the contrary if the blades rotation is hard remove 001 mm from
zinc anodes on the propeller shaft and on the end cap of the propeller If the surfaces B of the spacer using emery cloth wrapped around a
propeller has been assembled properly file Try until both hub and blades rotate freely
The blades must rotate freely and stop at the blade angle you selected
In the feathered position the blades must line up perfectly as in figure 6 2 Again mount the central cone gear 6 and reassemble the
propeller If
The propeller must never rotate as shown in figure 7 the propeller rotation still has some hard points remove 01 mm
with a
flat file from surface C so that central cone gear sits lower and the
clearance between conical gears increases
5 PROPELLER USE The Maxprop works By putting the engine
in gear the blades will engage in either forward or reverse The best way to
feather the propeller is
Power at 2 to 3 knots in forward
Kill the engine while still engaged in forward
Fig6 Fig7 When the engine has stopped if the shaft is still spinning engage the
transmission in reverse to stop the yes no You can check to see if
the propeller is feathered or not by taking the engine
out of gear If the propeller is not feathered the shaft will freewheel like with a

In that case start the engine again and repeat the three steps If your

case the blade movement can become hard It is necessary then to do feature to drive a shaft alternator
as follows referring to figure 8
6 PROPELLER MAINTENANCE The Maxprop needs to be regreased a
minimum of once every two yearsWe recommend Lubraplate 130 AA
B grease
There are two holes in the spinner of the propeller to grease Remove the
set screw from the forward holes with a 3 metric Allen wrench and screw
in the zerc tower attach your grease gun and fill the propeller with grease
until the grease starts to come out between the hub 1 and the spinner 7
Replace the set screw and remove the set screw from the more aft hole
C Reinstall the zerc tower and attach your grease gun and fill the propeller with
grease until the grease starts to come out between the blades and the
spinners Remove the zerc tower and reinsert the set screw into the
6 propeller Do not leave the zerc tower in the propeller
1 Open the propeller and assemble it again after having taken the
central cone gear 6 out so that the blade and the hub rotation are
independent If the hub rotation is hard remove 001 mm from
surfaces A with an emery cloth
With each pump of the grease gun rotate the propeller from forward to reverse
to allow the grease to work through the propeller
The numbers above are from Figure 2 at the beginning of this Maxprop Manual
Make sure that you always keep the zinc anodes in good condition They
must be replaced at least once a year The propeller must be protected by a lot Automatic Feathering Propeller
of zinc so also use a zinc on the shaft when possible When replacing it make
sure that you clean the contact point between the zinc and propeller Use a
wire brush or fine sandpaper to clean the aft of the end cap and the forward
face of the zinc to give the zinc good contact with the PROPELLER REMOVAL In order to remove the propeller you must first
Installation Instructions
remove the spinner and nut Be sure only to pull from outside the hub figure

the propeller
no Fig9 yes
8 WARNING It is important to follow the instruction below carefully so as to
avoid a shock to the gears on the blades and cone gear that could be
damaging to the teeth
1 When going from forward to reverse and the opposite it is necessary to
idle down and shift at low RPMs between gears
2 The propeller body must always be completely filled with a very fluid
grease This is so when you reverse direction the rotation will be smooth
with no binding Binding points will produce a shock and could damage 12532 Beverly Park Rd
