I have a 1967 Ski-Sporter with a 302 Ford Interceptor and a Volvo 280TE drive.
I am interested in knowing what people with similar E-Drive setups are using for propellers.
My E-Drive has a propshaft that has 15 spline, I'm assuming all E-Drive had the same propshaft but I'm not sure.
Thanks Danny8342583426

I just did a You Tube / Volvo Penta Project (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nECNMnIvidQ&list=PLBcphYdOqWq55c5hJZ716_MGid8AEXjQG) from start to finish. That E drive must have the smallest gears ever put in an outdrive ....

I'm sure it does, but it's apparently a bolt up to a 280/270 upper based on the limited info I've been able to find.

And wow, that's a lot of video. You said you were putting the gears from a 250 into the 270 you're working on? Does that mean you went to the 1.35:1 gears from the 2.15:1?

Hey Gary, Started off as a small video on the bottom end which turned into a real (much longer) project when it was stuck together with saltwater along with other things. Went from a 2.15 to a 1.56 to 1. I wish I could find some 1.31 gears.
Thanks for looking. :biggrin.:

Apparently there are now 2 of us looking. :frown:

Thanks to those that responded, looks like there is going to be some trial and error when I get to trying props.
The videos are great, a resource that I wish I had 10 years ago.
If you go to my profile there is an album there I think most e-drive guys will find helpful.
I apologize for the size of the pics but if you open a pic and then right click and select view they are more easily viewed. I wanted you to be able to see all the detail and read the text clearly
