Hello, my name is***** will assist you.

Are you running the stock aluminum prop? Which was did you install the thrust washer?

Ask Your Own Boat Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Stock prop yes, grooved out side of thrust towards motor
Marine Mechanic: Charles, Marine Mechanic replied 1 year ago

So you had the extended lip toward the prop?

Ask Your Own Boat Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
There isn't an extended lip. On inside of the thrust washer there is splines on half and smooth on the other side. I put the smooth side towards motor

Identical
Marine Mechanic: Charles, Marine Mechanic replied 1 year ago

And you installed it with that lip going to the gear case?

Ask Your Own Boat Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
it is short of going tight to the seal. Staying away approx. 1/4".
Marine Mechanic: Charles, Marine Mechanic replied 1 year ago

How far did it hold the prop off?

Was the old one the same way?

Was the gear case recently resealed?

Ask Your Own Boat Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Old one wasnt on there. I noticed play in the prop after purchasing boat and i took it apart. Previous owner had a spacer there, identical to the spacer at the castle nut.
Marine Mechanic: Charles, Marine Mechanic replied 1 year ago

the other one is actually for the discharge end of the prop.

When this one on the shaft, how far is the prop from the end of the gear case?

Ask Your Own Boat Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
When the discharge one was on the it allowed the prop to close to housing and rubs it. Actually wore a grove in prop
Marine Mechanic: Charles, Marine Mechanic replied 1 year ago

So how about the new one?

Ask Your Own Boat Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I need it approx. To go on 1/4" more. Tempted to tool the thrust washer and remove splines
Marine Mechanic: Charles, Marine Mechanic replied 1 year ago

Can you please post a pic of the end of the prop and the end of the gear case? I would like to take a look at it.\

Do you see any wear on the end of the prop?

Ask Your Own Boat Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Not on interior
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Probably cant send me number to text pix?
Marine Mechanic: Charles, Marine Mechanic replied 1 year ago

Is there a brand or part number on the prop?

Is the prop hub flush with the opening on the prop?

I sent you a phone offer. With that we would move to the phone in a voice conversation, and we could also test.

Ask Your Own Boat Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
No, the prop is also short of the prop housing same distance
Marine Mechanic: Charles, Marine Mechanic replied 1 year ago

Even without the thrust washer?

Ask Your Own Boat Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Without washer is too tight it doesnt rotate
Marine Mechanic: Charles, Marine Mechanic replied 1 year ago
