    RXTx 260 prop off

    Last weekend we faced problem with my TX260 after i installed solas prop. After 15 to 20 mints of operation i faced a problem some water was entering inside the hull, after taking out the air filter out and the supercharger pipes i found out that the water entering the hull from the shaft area although my cuz and i tried to screw back the clamps but no use. we just wanna save the watercraft from drowning. After opening the pump we found out that the prop is loss, also the shaft thread is damaged and the plastic area is damaged from the prop. i don't know what caused the prop to get loss and make this disaster this is not my first time to change prop of PWC.

    It sounds like you didn't torque it hard enough. I have had mine come loose to, and it caused the same problem.
    Torque it HARD

    You can get a new shaft and wear-ring from Jerrys online store

    +1 If the prop isn't on there super tight, it will come loose and push against the driveline and separate the carbon ring seal and water starts coming in. Not fun.
