Still need the diameter! Are the tips round or square?

B-29? C-97? But then the diameter should be quite a bit larger than a P-51.

In the blade designation, "A" would designate "shank fairings," i.e. blade A-7027C-8 is designed to allow cuffs. That blade without cuffs would be simply 7027C-8.

A & B series R-2800's used S.A.E. 50 spline hubs while the C-series used S.A.E. 60 spline hubs.

R-3350's used 60 spline hubs, as did many R-4360's.

Could be any on of these series of props: 24E50 24E60 34D50 34E60 54H50 54H60, maybe there are more too!
