    as your looking at it, clockwise (reverse thread), if its original, heat it up a bit to doften the threadlock and expand it a bit...

    Pull Towards You

    If you face the pump and the shaft is to your left and the pump is to your right pull the wrench towards you. That is clockwise. They are reverse threads. Heat it up real good with a propane torch and use a wrench with a pipe extension or a long breaker bar.

    Scott, that prop comes off counter clock wise, if there was no anti sieze, then it will be hard, use it this time and you'll be fine.

    Harbor freight sells a 36 inch crecent wrench for $19... Its the best $19 you'll spend when it comes to removing props or road rage..

    Facing the pump... splines to the left stator to the rite pull down...

    So easy a caveman could do it?
