For valve clearance I always set mine up at zero when the engine is cold. If the rocker arm can move side to side should be good. When the engine warms up, the clearance opens up.

Yes, APC make that prop, they still have a wide range of props and pretty much can make any prop that have had in the past. Look at their website.
