Hi

I have a sabb model G with a variable pitch prop on my boat. Recently it has been low on power, and having taken her out of the water I notice that I can easily turn the prop blades about 15-20 degrees with my hands. I wonder if the mechanism should be as slack as this, and if not whether that might be the cause of the low power problem. HAs anyone experienced a similar problem with these props? Any suggestions as to what might be the cause/remedy?

Cheers

Marcus

Hi Rob and Marcus,
Sabb Motor, Norway is still producing this engine and has spares. These propellers need a lot of grease lubrication from the big grease cup placed inboard.
I guess the play in the blades (you did mean 15-20 deg pitch variation, Marcus?) is caused by wornout pitch control mechanism due to lack of lubrication.
May be a good workshop could make some additional bushings in the pitch control in the propeller.
You mentioned loss of power, has the RPM at full power been reduced as well? If yes, the engine has lost power because of overpitching due to wornout propeller.
To your info Rob, the same propeller was used on a 18 HP Sabb type 2H, 2100 RPM. The Sabb 2J (30 HP at 1800 RPM) used a 24 inch diameter propeller with a much bigger thrust bearing in the propeller boss (propeller head as we call it). Lubrication is important!
Cheers Asle

Hi Rob and Asle

Found the problem - yes it is worn thrust rings in the boss. In the Uk these can be obtained from http://www.sleeman-hawken.co.uk/ Who seem to stock all sabb spares. Sabb has a list of their other agents around the world on their website www.sabb.no.

Cheers,

Marcus.

I have a used Sabb 10 HP engine that needs a bit of work to be serviceable, or could be cannibalized for parts. We are located in Olympia WA. Please contact if interested.

HI David - you might try selling through the Metal Boat Society. Also, one just sold on EBay for $3500. Where are you located? Mary

SABB 2H ENGINE- CLUTCH SEIZED
THE BOLT THAT HOLDS THE STARTING PAW AND THE STARTING PAW ( G35J and G35i) came loose and the clutch U bolt must have sheared off the bolt and then the two items jamed the clutch. I have fished the two parts out of the clutch housing and everything seems fine ( I do not use the hand cranking system)
I am waiting for comments from Norway but would like to know if anyone has experienced this problem

thanks, Jim

"Hundested equipment is made in Denmark.... and it is therefore 100% compatible with the Sabb gear offerings."
I found this at http://www.kastenmarine.com/CPprops.htm#II.%20CPP%20COSTS
Hope this helps...

3ringmike,

Any chance the liner/sleeve and head are in good shape for the Saab you are replacing?

I am designing jet ski pump for my own jet ski project.However I encounterd some problems ,
how to deicide the diameter and pitch of impeller with good efficiency.The 80 hp/4000RPM diesel engine will be used.The top speed targeted is 35knots, don't know if it is right target. found the prop calulator which can calculate the dia and pitch of propeller , but I think impeller's should be a bit different from the prop.
If there is anybody who knows how to calculate the impeller pitch and diameter ,please help .
