    Changing impeller and cone wont come off..

    I bought a stage one rxp and the previous owner therefore put the stage one prop on it.. I went to change it to a stage three prop last night but the cone will NOT come off. I dont know what to do. Ive been trying to tap it off with a hammer and chisel.. but no luck. Anyone else encounter this???

    The plastic cone will come off if you tap it side-to-side with a rubber mallet. It sounds like the grease is causing a suction and holding the cone on... Ron

    Is it the metal cone or rubber cone?
