Default 3 blade prop to two blade prop ?

Is there a conversion chart if you are going from a 3 blade prop to a two blade prop? I have a 13-5 3 blade and want to go to a 2 blade. Not sure what prop to buy.

Rule of thumb going from a 2 blade to a 3 is up one on pitch and down one on length. reversing the formula should get you close. The engine size should help with your answers unless it's a motor.
