Auto prop

It could be the cutless bearing is getting worn. The other reason may be the type of grease you are using to grease the hub is not to spec and it is washing out. Thirdly, everything wears out after awhile. Check for any wear in the blades and hub. Fourth, perhaps the shaft and prop have somehow gone out of balance. This could happen if the cutless is worn. All of this can be checked on the hard.
