Most propeller shops can rehub your propeller.

Can anyone point me in the right direction for a new or slightly used prop for my 1958 35 hp johnson?
I'm in Canada and can't seem to find a new one online anywhere, just really beat up ones on ebay for now. My prop, rubber, and brass pin drive have all separated. Can they be rebuilt? Also need a seal kit for the gear case and proper prop nut but I have found those on Amazon. 

thanks in advance for any help

Wow, those seats look really good! It must be nice to finally have that done.

Thanks! I'm pretty happy with them. Especially how close they match the old '58.

Upholstery pics will have to wait.. he has to modify them a little bit. Wasn't able to bring the boat to him so he did it remotely which made things a bit more difficult. I do finally have a cover though! Can finally spend less time cleaning and more time ironing out the details. Was painful drilling more holes for snaps but it had to be done...

i used that 4’ rule it worked out perfect for my ranger… I could’ve almost used and extra 6-12” on I think throttle as it’s a touch further away from controls… where they hook up on motor maybe different on all motors though of course.
I used this brand for 56’ Evinrude 
It looks like my battery is in excess of what Ray is saying on cranking amps at 1000cca but is a marine crank battery… very impressed so far with it.. rare to have to charge for my load and no charge system..
look forward to seeing upholstery !!

Without knowing the details of what motor, starter, charging system, etc, a 400CCA or larger battery will start about any vintage outboard and any group 24 or larger will have more Cold Cranking Amps than that. Even if you’re going to run without a charging system I would get a marine starting battery, not a deep cycle battery. With a well tuned motor and no draws other than starting the motor most marine group 24 starting batteries will last a week or better of running everyday with no charging system before they need charging.

if you are still needing a hand full of rivets send me a PM with what you need and an address.

Can anyone advise on what size battery I need for the boat? 

I'm also looking for a decent price on a seloc manual for the '58 at a reasonable price in canada if anyone can point me in the right direction it would be much appreciated. 

Pics of apholstery and new cover coming soon. :)
