Question New Prop Shaft Cal 2-30 Atomic 4

I need to remove my prop shaft on my Cal 2-30 that has an Atomic 4. I'm replacing the Cutless bearing and installing a PSS shaft seal. I'd rather just cut the prop shaft and replace the shaft and coupling rather than damage the transmission end etc. I've read the ways to remove the coupling from the shaft in the boat but there's still the possibility of causing problems on the engine/trans side and I want to avoid that. Where can I buy a new prop shaft?

I see learning about quadrants and rudders in your future

There are hundreds of shaft places and if your near any king of boating there should be something local

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

Removing the shaft coupling from the transmission isn't that bad. Remove the bolts and separate the couplings. But getting the coupling off the shaft is the problem. You can't remove the shaft from the boat without taking off the coupling of course. Using a deep socket etc between the prop shaft and the trans shaft and then tightening down the coupling bolts is one way to get it off but you risk damaging the trans coupling and or the bearing.
so... I can cut the shaft with w 4 inch cutoff wheel on my grinder and then remove the shaft from the boat. remove the bolts holding the shaft coupling to the atomic4 trans coupling and take that out.

I bought a replacement shaft from these guys a few years ago. Very pleased.

Hi, Thanks, I've removed the rudder already as usual maintenance. I don't have a quadrant, I'm thinking you have a wheel as opposed to a tiller?

Ask other boaters in your area (Gloucester, MA ?) which prop shop they use.

Sometimes it is just a lot easier cutting the shaft in the boat and removing the halves. It was for us 2 years ago. Cut our old bronze shaft with a Sawzall. New SS shaft was @ $250.

That's what I'm going to do. I was looking for a place to get a new shaft. Thanks

Thanks. Did you send them the old shaft to match up? Mine will be in two pieces after I remove it.

Re: New Prop Shaft Cal 2-30 Atomic 4

I would try first , before it would get cut , unless the shaft was already junk! A wheel puller is cheaper then a shaft. You people must have more money then brains!....Dale
