B4 Front Duoprop propeller for 280 DP, 290 DP
This is a B series front Duoprop propeller for the 290-DP and 280 DP Sterndrives. Always use type C stainless steel propellers in engines exceeding 240 hp or capable of speeds above 38 knots (45 mph).
Type B propeller sets are replaced by type J propeller sets. However, Type B propellers (front and rear) are sold individually as spare parts.
When going from B series to J series, add one number - IE B3 converts to J4
If your existing set is badly pitted, bent or the bushing worn, then its time to consider changing your props before they fail. A bent prop causes vibration risking water entering the lower gear case, through the drive shaft prop seals.
