Does anyone have a thrust washer for an OMC Raker (not raker II) that I could borrow or purchase today or tomorrow?

Found one, thanks to anyone who looked through their pile of spare parts!

Now we'll see how much speed I pick up going from a trashed Shooter to a mint Raker

I hope you are right, but I think it might take some prop work before I see those gains. I have been running numbers in the prop slip calculator and it's just not showing those kind of numbers. I think the Raker is not going to be enough prop in regards to pitch, it is a 24, which is what many have told me works on most 175hp engines, especially if my boat likes the 27 Shooter. I think I'll need to have it worked to a 25. Here are the slip numbers I got:

Shooter 27p: 65mph (gps) @ 5600rpm = 16% slip which I believe because of how beat up it is

Raker 24p: 67mph @ 5600 = 2% slip hahahahaha, impossible.

You will inherently get more than that on slip. I believe you may be able to cup the Raker to 24 1/2, but it is physically impossible to re-pitch a prop. You will probably see a much higher RPM at the present height setting, so be careful not to over rev if you were getting 5600 with a 27 (which surprises me on a 175), then that motor will spin that 24 like nobody's business. (you may want to have that tach checked out)

Well I ran it yesterday, right past Bob fishing a point actually, and was able to get 66mph out of the Raker 24p but I had to turn it to 5800 rpms which I dont like. I wish they made a Raker 25p that I could try out but it looks like I'm going to have to try to get ahold of a 26p to test.

After I find which prop my boat likes the most I plan on sending it out for B&B and some cup to keep the bow up even with a load.

Lastly, I measured prop to pad this morning and it is close to 5" (no jackplate)... so I am looking for a 4" JP locally if anyone knows someone selling one that will work on my Stratos (I dont know much about jackplates so Im not sure if they are universal or if only some will work for my boat)
