-1 1/8" hole in center. two 5/16" mounting holes 2 1/4 inches apart for the attaching bolts.

-spinner cap covering the mounting nut is 3" in diameter with a spherical raised center, rising 5/8".

-cup behind prop is shaped like a soup bowl; it is conical shaped, 5" at the prop side and 6 1/8" at the open end, 1 3/4" deep. 1 3/8" hole in center. two 3/8" holes in center, 2 1/4" apart for the mounting bolts.

-cup and spinner cap are painted red.

-wood is straight grained Douglas fir. hardwoods are usually too heavy.

-some of the later 6-volt models used a 7' prop.
