Yep, I remember all the mickey mouse pretend calculations to decide whether to run a 5" or 6" prop on a particular plane - in reality it was just suck-it-and-see. We made pull-cord starters using a metal bottle top under the prop retaining nut after getting too many raps across the back of the fingers when flick-starting.
The bigger diesels could draw blood from the unwary...i.e. me
