    How to swap props on a zieman trailer

    It's getting close to riding season for some of you in the colder areas & that means TESTING,PROP SWAPPING & all that fun time consuming stuff. One day I had to swap props,3 different props to try out to be exact. My vise broke & I was pissed & wasn't gonna get beat by a broken vise. It took 30 minutes to find a spot on the trailer I can use, don't ask me how I found it under the gas cans but I did. I was bored so I had my 7 year old video me removing & installing a 3 blade on an RXP pump with my trailer & a few tools. This is usefull if you don't have a vise on hand & don't want to wait for another day to go back to the lake after you have swapped or bent the prop at home. The pics are self explanatory & I'll attach 2 clips to see how easy it is. This might be a waste of time or nothing new for some but might be helpful & usefull to others.

    I have a 24" crescent wrench and a 4' length of 2" DIA PVC pipe that allows me to swap impellers on a picnic table....I'm gettin old - I only did 3 impellers in one weekend.

    Jim - remember the weekend in Havasu when I met up with you to pick-up an impeller?
