    We had to make a special tool to get them off . The tool holds the prop on the trailing edge blades and you turn the shaft with no heat or no damage to prop.We had to make because of the prop tool was slipping inside of the prop .

    lots of heat, and two guys with cheater bars on the wrenches on the prop/shaft tools....strap the pump down to the trailer and you both give it hell...feels and sounds like it breaks everytime, but it pops off no problems.....

    Bring it on!!!

    Come on now first off ,are you turning it the correct direction many people even someone who has taken a couple off still makes that mistake????SEcond if the guy at the factory put enough loctite on it,it wouldnt corode to the threads on the shaft,I have never found a yama that I couldnt get off by myself,over 75 under my belt perhaps more. (well maybe one).However I did mostly freshwater skis.I also made a tool from 2"pipe and 1/2" flatbar that locks pump,however many times with heat on the hub ,remember the threads are deep,dont be bashful with the heat,then take a cup of cold water and pour it on the shaft close to impeller ,while holding wrenches under torque.It will sound like a rifle going off.Answer me this are the threads left hand or right?????Not trying to be smart ass only to help!JMHOThanks>Marvin
