Re: turning direction of prop and thread pitch - Santorin
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I am quite certain that I have the aluminum casing - so that would mean I have the RH version. What does RH standing for....probably "right...."?
Would you know the pitch of the thread? Its a M 20 thread...but no pitch has been mentioned and my boat is in the water.....

Originally, this Santorin has an aluminum casing C-drive, labelled CATEP, with a RH pitch propeller.
Since 1990, the drive may have been replaced with a cast iron casing one, and if so, the prop is a LH.
Check the casing with a magnet, or send a picture of the drive top unit.

I wonder if the turning direction of the prop on the Santorin in left or right hand?
Does anyone of you know the pitch of the thread on the Santorin? I have a drawing on the gearbox, however it only say M 20.....but is silent about the pitch.
