    important impeller removal torque specs?

    Are there any torque specs that should be paid close attention to when installing a Solas 14/19 on an RXP, and reinstalling the pump in general

    Thanks

    it is metric measure and means newton/meters instead of standard foot/lbs and it is used to measure torque.

    Most torque wrenches have both scales on them.

    A word of advice. Why the manual says to torque a prop at only 80 nm/59 ft lbs is beyond me. That is BS!!!! I followed that guideline as well until my prop spun off and I paid dearly for it. Torque the prop to at least 90 ft lbs and you will be much safer.

    I torqued mine to 80Nm and have put 13 hard hours on it with no problems.
