    hold the back end in a vice and use the prop tool in the spline and undo anti-clockwise, if you dont have a prop tool improvize with a pipe wrench and put the top jaw down into the spline and lock the adjustable jaw against the front prop leading edge (protect edge with rag).

    When you remove the cone from the other side of the pump you will see two flat spots on the shaft. Put these two flats in a vice and clamp it down. Pick up the impeller removal tool (about $15). It unscrews/counterclockwise.
    They can sometimes be pretty tough to get out. I use a 1/2" breakerbar on a 15/16" socket if I remember correctly. When I put the prop back on I use a good coating of antiseize on the threads.
    (Just FYI the tool for the kawi props is the same as the tool for the 2-stroke seadoo props)

    You need a prop tool to get it off for sure and a heavy duty vise.

    thats funny as the way i explained seemed to work fine for me but hey what would i know fyi you dont always need the correct tool to do a set job, but yes i did reinstall with the prop tool after purchasing it. but the above question asked how to remove the prop and i answered with the most common tool he may have been able to obtain, why wait around for a tool when he may have had one already in is cupboard. sometimes you need to think outside the square.

    Why not break the torque first before removing the pump from the ski. Have a buddy hold the shaft damper flange with a cloth strap wrench while you apply torque at the shaft under the rear cone using a suitable crows foot. A pipe wrench is generally for plumbers, the jaws could mark the metal or it could slip.

    Seriously guys. Why risk expensive damage when the tool is only $22.

    These OEM props arnt made from the best material. Putting any force on them could easily bend them.

    Your also going to need it on reinstall to properly torqe the prop down. TRUST ME. We had one back spin enough to push the crank forward.

    I actually find it comical that someone would use a pipe wrench to remove a prop... no?
