I used a 1/2" socket wrench extender to unscrew the nut, and I had to take it out completely to put the bearing puller in there against the aft end of the shaft. It took some doing, but, it worked. The prop did not shoot off or anything. The hardest part was getting the cotter pins out and making the puller grab on. We had to grind the ends to sharpen them. BTW- Harbor Freight sells them for $18.
Thanks, as always to the vast knowledge data base that is SailNet!!!!!
PS- Does anyone want a Martec Folding Prop? I'm going to try a trade in for a fixed.
