No. brand new prop.I lubed the new oil seal and put the pump back together.It was so tight on the dry oil seal so a little lube and I let the boat run at idle and seems to be fine.I guess mabey the oil seal need to seat and break in.

It spins freely before I put the impeller on.The prop isnt hitting the housing.Im pritty shure the prop is just thight aginst the washer an thats tight aginst the new oil seal,but i thought it has to be tight to seal.I ran the pump at idle and all seemed well.I greased the oil seal before putting the prop on so it would be less friction when breaking the new seal in.The prop and shaft did turn tight but this was just by hand.I dont think the boat had a problem turning it.I just wasnt shure how freely the whole unit shuld turn by hand.Thanks for the help.
