1979 MkIII with YanmarYSM12  (LH Screw @ 1" Shaft Dia)

Eyeballing a Gori folding prop with gears but it seems

like the blades might touch the rudder when folded.

Black Arts doesn't cover off on that combination.

Any solutions or testimonials.

Cheers * Thanks

12"  x 9 with 1 inch shaft is the size of the two blade Gori.

Existing fixed 2 blade is a federal 13" x 8.

What does the 4 mean in the pic?

If the blades don't touch the rudder, i think the prop will work.

If I need and an inch or two, cut the shaft and re-thread?

Measure the distance from the bottom of the notch in the torpedo section, to the tip of the prop.
Then from the end of the driveshaft add that distance and 1/4'".
Do this with the same slope of the shaft. Does it touch the rudder?
