Stuck prop on the shaft again
Man I am getting tired of these props getting stuck on the shafts is there anyone I can send this thing to to get this prop off. This is the 3rd one I have had stuck on the shafts. Its a stock prop on a stock shaft it just wont let go. I tried heat, I tried heat had a BIG MOFO wrench nothing works I even tried Phillip's idea of putting the wrench on one end and driveing the car over it the use anothe big wrench to get if off but no luck can some please help the last one I had to cut off and it took forever...

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.....

LOL! Yea I remember catching hell with that stocker.. The guy at the factory that dabs locktite on the threads b/f install is prolly laughing all day long!

Yes buddy at the factory is making a fortune off of loctite love that product but only marine grade grease on the threads of the drive shaft makes it an easy prop to remove the next time then the instalation is ready to role!

I have been using marine grease for 4 years and it works great.

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
