Hi guy's!

Need advice here.

I'm winterising a friend speedster 200 with twin 215hp. When pulling jet pumps, I found out both nose cones (oem) to be splitted into 2 pieces, 1 of them remained in the drive shaft protector (#49) and the other to the prop itself. Looks like the nose cone is designed to partially ride inside the drive shaft protector and my guess is with a bit of twisting it would rub against each other and split.

The question now... Do I really need to replace those nose cones or if I could leave them without??

Thanks for any input!!
