|JimsCAL||I would say as long as you can drive the prop fully on with the nut you are OK.|

|T37Chef||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|

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.
