Default How can I tell the specs on my prop?

I recently purchased a new boat and am going to get a new prop for it. I read online that the pitch number would be etched in the metal on the prop somewhere, but I took mine off yesterday and cleaned it completely and the only thing I could find on the prop was inside the hub where it read:

MICHIGAN
P J 0 6

Not sure what that is supposed to mean. Is there any other way to find out the pitch and information I need to purchase a replacement prop?

It's a 1984 50hp Johnson

Now that it's off, take it to a prop shop. They will measure it and tell you what you have. More than likely there will be no charge.

its either on the hub, stamped into it or on the tunnel between the blades. it'll look like 12.5x14p which means 12.5" in diameter x 14 pitch.

Don't ever rely on what is stamped on the prop. A lot of new propellers are not accurately stamped. As suggested take it to the prop shop and have them read the prop.

I found the details on my prop by calling Michigan Wheel customer service and giving them the numbers I found. It's a 12-1/4" x 15" 3-blade aluminum propeller for Evinrude/Johnson 40 HP - 75 HP outboards. I will still be bringing it to a propellar place to take a look at it though. Thanks for everyone's help.

Good choice this way you will know for sure what you have. And it will be easier to determine accurately the correct prop you will need.
