Please don't put a pipe wrench on the prop shaft. I normaly use a 2x4 or other wood block and put it between the blades and the cutlass or blade and the hull. I applaud your drive to change prop without a pullout. Try to have someone at hand who is experienced in changing props. ps putting any modern marine transmission in gear without the motor running will have no effect on the prop shaft turning as they are hydraulic transmissions. Like the automatic in your car.
