    Thanks for your reply, I think I have a vapour lock problem and I am considering installing the 2nd pump. Do you perhaps have the specs for a high volume low pressure pump. This will help me in buying the correct pump.

    Any idea what prop I should use for my conditions (I am 4000 ft above sea level_
    Also what does the 13,7 and the 17.5 stand for?
    The ACME site explains how to read your propeller.

    The numbers stand for diameter and pitch.

    I just called ACME and gave them all of your information. The salesman said you are running a "4th gear prop" and at your altitude you can't get the RPM you want out of it.

    He recommends going to the ACME 537 which is a 13.5 x 16 prop. Or, for even more low end pull for wakeboarding but giving up some top speed, you can go to the ACME 1579, which is a 13.5 x 14.25 prop.

    I hope this helps you.

    Thanks this helps a lot. I have decided to go with the 1579.
    Before I can place an order I need to be sure of the shaft size and rotation of my boat.
    ACME has suggested that I contact MB and post my Hull ID ( US-ISRML006H405 )
    Is there anyway that you can check for me ?

    Also ACME does not want to sell directly to me in South Africa and we do not have any dealers here.
    Any suggestions???
