Solas Prop Blue Aluminum Piece
I was looking my ski over and noticed the Blue Aluminum piece screwed into the prop is loose on the shaft. Do I need to remove the prop to fix this?

To keep the nose cone from coming unscrewed i take a flat head screwdriver and a hammer and knick the threads up in 3 places around the cone. Then use some red loc tite and screw it down. You will never have to worry about it coming off again.

Personally... I wouldn't pull anything but the intake grate... just to cut that damn cone off

Works perfectly. I don't understand why people have this problem.
I was looking at one ski this last week-end, and the einstein who changed the prop put the old rubber one on, saying to the client he has a lot of trouble with them riding up the D Shaft... Mate, they only have to look the part to be better..!!
ONLY, it was on a simple stock with 14/19 change.... gain good prop... loose the advantage. CLient said it was no faster..!!
I wonder sometimes..!!
Better this way, or without... stamp on the rubber one, and NEVER fit to any prop apart from orig.... with trepidation...

knock on wood, I have never had an issue. I don't even use loctite. I do pull my props very often, so that may contribute to never having one come loose. I run mostly the blue r and d nose cone or the green solas.

Just waiting for my supercharger to show up and hopefully back to the lake.
Until this thing I hated working on these, this one is way more user friendly than it looks.
