A few years ago, I bought a handful of new old stock prop shafts. What I need to know, is because I am converting all of my boats to brushless, either from ic or brushed, will the propshafts in the boats already, or the new ones still in the packets, be suitable for brushless power?
None of my boats are race boats and I'm not looking for ultimate speed.
My boats are motor cruisers between 29 and 46 inch, plus a 49 inch MTB as well.
The motors that I am looking at using will be outrunners, between 750 and 1000(ish) kv, so not really high rpms.
I have seen posts where people have fitted tubes onto the side (facing up) of the stern tube for lubrication, is this something that I need to be doing?
Or is there other lubrication of the propshaft I should do instead that would be enough?
I won't be running the boats at high/max speed for long periods, mainly scale, occasionally a bit more
Thanks in advance for any advice.
