i guess hascon is gone but i have my same small fan off my other boat and i know its going to be way under powered for my taste so wat im thinking is possibly getting a reduction of somesort depending on the price

i am running a 6.5 grey hound with a 32" two blade arrowprop wood

im kicking around getting the reduction and like a 40" hascon or just keeping it direct and getting a 32" or 36" hascon

but the main reason i want something new is that my wood prop is NOT BALANCED BY NO MEANS arrow prop screwed me over good on that prop so let me know wat yall think o btw im running a 17x61

I am not 100% sure, but I think the reductions are for v-twin engines only. Do you remember the diameter of your output shaft? That could be the limiting factor.

I can honestly say I have never seen a reduction on any single cylinder engine, there might not be enough gain for the money. Your looking to pay more for the reduction that what your engine cost you, and as sad it is to say, arrowprop, who left you with a bad taste in your mouth, has one of the lowest priced reductions that I have found...

well give it a shot, it works for the bigger motors, so I suppose the concept will be the same. I am sure that hascon will work pretty well, especially if its spinning a a slower speed than the crank. You will be able to pitch it out pretty good and get some good torque at low rpms...

Whoa, slow down Bad...I wasn't offering to sale, I was asking if anybody was interested in 13hp clone reductions. The reason being I've got a minimum I gotta' pay for waterjet time and I could probably get 10 of the hard parts cut for the price of one and spread the cost out. Yours being the 6.5hp I have to see if they are going to have a bunch of heartburn loading another program for the minimum and I haven't heard back from them yet. That being said, I'll help ya' with a reduction for your 6.5 one way or another, it just might not be Aluminum and it might not be waterjet cut. And I do this for you because your such an entertaining rascal...and I mean that in the most affectionate manner! Lol hehe

I just got my 38" 3 blade hascon in and i am running it direct drive on a kohler 18 horse. Was on the phone with jason for quite awhile running numbers and different sizes for my motor. The best thing i can tell you is to give him a call and know the horsepower and torque curves for your motor. I went with a 38" 3 blade set at 30 degree pitch. I plan to run the prop in btw 2700-2800 rpm which will be 14.7 horsepower on my motor. It takes 14.5 horse to turn the 38" hascon at 2700 rpm by jason's computer.
