I just inherited a wooden prop. It has the following markings:
L.H.H.P. 370
Liberty Motor
Lang Products Company
No. 5222
Pitch 8.65
Dia 8 - 4
Org No
SF 5090

THe prop has metal leading edges on the on about the first 1.5 feet. The ends (about 2 feet or so) are cloth covered
The prop overall is 8' 4.5"
The diameter of the hub is 11.5 inches

It has a Lang company logo (blue and gold) without the banners around the edges that say Lang

Can anyone tell me how I can find out what sort of aircraft this prop was used on?

thanks,
Kevin Stone

Does it look like this propeller (http://woodenpropeller.com/HS2L.html)?

If so, the drawing number is S.E. 5090 (the SE stands for Steam Engineering, the Navy Bureau responsible for procuring propellers during WW1.)
