New Prop & Shaft - install prop questions
I just got a new Campbell Sailor prop and a new stainless shaft. Not sure I installed it correctly (or I'm being too fussy).
Here's what I did:
I can't understand what's holding the prop from sliding back to the line? Should I remove some width in the key? Key slides well in both keyways.
Now that I've got some space between the key and the top/bottom of the keyways, should I get a new key and start over?
If I give the nut a turn with a wrench I can hit my line, but not without the wrench.
Am I over-thinking this?
And, I can't find any info on the proper torque for the prop nut. I've seen everything from 10 to 100 foot pounds.
BTW, the small prop nut is to go on first, followed by the larger...most do it back wards ;) You may want to confirm that with Norm
I would say as long as you can drive the prop fully on with the nut you are OK.
