Any suggestions on where I can buy them at and what size I would need?
It doesn't make a difference in vibration if you run only 1 plug or 2 it don't matter, But if there is a nut in there that would throw it out of balance. The other thing since its a used prop maybe it had been repaired and didn't get done just right. As far a where to buy plugs at you can buy from your local mercury dealer or I do have them in stock they run about $2.50 a piece. I'd go with the large plugs.
