    Making a hitch reciever jig to re-pitch my prop and I have a couple questions.

    #1 I don't have the prop out right now, does anyone know the height of a stock 2011 FZS SHO prop?
    I need to get a bolt to hold it down to the jig I'm making. A 3/4" bolt, if I remember right?

    #2 Will my prop-shaft holding tool from my 2004 FXHO work for my 2011 FZS SHO?

    #3 When doing prop adjustments I figure I will have the prop in and out several times. Is it okay not to
    use sealer on the pump when putting it back together each time?

    Thanks

    Your 2004 shaft holding tool will not work as the 1.8l uses a thicker shaft.
    using no sealant is fine when constantly removing the pump to change prop pitch.
    once dialed in then seal it all up properly.

    Here's how I set mine up. Make sure to use a big-ass wrench to do it. I bought a 22" crescent wrench from Harbor Fright for like 20$

    I'm ready to go, I have a 1/2" thick 12" round plate, receiver, 24" crescent wrench and the gauge. I was hoping to get the bolt before I go to the lake but the prop is on the ski at the lake. I was thinking an 8" bolt but the stock prop is pretty tall so I'm not sure 8" is long enough. Anyone have a stock prop they can measure for me?
