    solas cone

    The green solas cap on nut is loose and moves up & down the drive shaft. i tried to screw it in by hand but had no luck. the cone looks pretty beat up it no longer is green.could this be the cause of my lost rpm 7800rpm all day with the solas 8100 with stock prop.

    I'm having the same problem with the cone and have read on other threads that it could cost as much as 100-200 RPM's.

    Mine has done it twice. I put some red locktight and it never moved again. Both times mine came off there was water in the grease.

    make sure you have the O-ring in place between the cone and the prop...

    also... red loctite the threads and take screwdriver and nick the threads... OR permatex ultra-black the cone on there.... let it dry overnight... tighten VERY tightly... i use a rubber wrench strap thingy whaever you call it, lol.....

    could DEFINITELY be the cause of RPM loss

    AJ,

    I had the same problem when I had the GTX shaft. Because it does not have threads makes it damn near impossible. Only because I was always taking the prop on and off so frequently while trying to find the correct pitch, it never had a chance to come totally off. When it would slip a bit though, I would get underneath with a long bar or screwdriver, go through the intake grate, and push it back up against the impeller as best as I could.
