Default Balancing a big prop

The prop for my Moki 2.1 has a hole in it that is about 14 mm. The DuBro prop balancer has bushings to hold the prop that are about 13 mm or less. The result is that the prop cannot be held firmly or centered on the shaft. Where can I get larger bushings to fit the shaft that is used to balance the prop?

That's one large hole, I assume the engine has a similar size shaft? Most are 10 mm.

Yeah you might not want to use that prop. My Moki prop shafts were 10mm except for a short section that was larger. Not sure if it was 14mm though. Sounds like somebody drilled it all the way through at 14mm.
