  • Prop Replacement

    Has anyone replaced their prop without using a prop puller? I need to replace my prop and it being Memorial day weekend everything is closed. I noticed a vibration yesterday after taking the boat for the first time this year and noticed by prop had a ding on one of the fins. Fortunately I've got a brand new spare. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    The first time I took my prop off was without a puller and it came right off without any beating. All I can say is give it a try.

      I have a 3 blade prop. Didn't use a prop puller. But I used a regular 3 leg puller and it popped right off. The puller just clears the rudder.

        Thanks, I appreciate the input. I'll try and pull it off this afternoon. I have a three leg puller on standby just in case.

          Loosen the nut a few turns and give it a tug, i just swapped mine with a puller and it took some work.

            I had to do same and didn't have a puller and tried pulling for 15 mins and wouldn't budge. if you lightly tap the end of prop shaft the harmonics will pop it off

              Thanks, my buddy just called and told me he has a prop puller just in case. He lives five minutes from the house. I'll pick it up on the way home from work and change that sucker out. I appreciate all the feedback.

                Put anti-seize on it and the next time it will pop right off--mine did.
