    How many mm's is the impeller alen bolt on the prop?

    I want to get a socket style alen, to torque on the prop nut.

    I have personally never seen this large of an alen head in a socket style, but how else can you get a good torque?


    Also, what is the torque spec for the prop nut?

    I got the 12mm wrench. I put a pipe on the end of it and "give er". Is that all you need to do? is tighten it down "real tight"?

    Take me through how you determine if the nut is on tight enough

    Yeah, put a 2-3 foot pipe over your allen wrench and go to town. I'm sure there are torque specs, but I just tighten it by feel. I don't tighten it all the way because it is a bitch to get off the next time. But with a cheater bar, you can get it plenty tight enough without torquing the high holy hell out of it.

    i picked up the socket from a local place that manufactures their own tools... it's a monster of an allen to be in a socket, but was a good investment

    Impeller should be torqued to 80N.M or 59ft.lbs
    Pump should be 21n.m or 16ft.lbs
    Use locktight on Pump and be careful not to over torque the pump I did it once and striped the thread really easily.
