I have a prop, but it doesnt appear to have any markings on it. How do I know if I have it on right. I really dont know anything about propellers or the theory of operation.

The markings (like "5D 3P", in this case) are always on the front of the prop (or the "suck" side, if you will). The convex , sorry, I meant concave Embarassed side of the blades faces the back of the plane, as that's the "blow" side of the prop.

Thank you Dirk, that explains things nicely. I did a little reading on props and how they work, so I have a little better understanding of the mechanics of it. I guess I should have done that first, before posting, but I really enjoy the down to earth feedback I get from the members. Once again thanks for all the help. Jeff
