    Default Changing prop 1980 80hp

    Hi all,

    I am having trouble removing the old prop from shaft.

    Undone the bolt, but the propeller won't come off.

    Put some wd40 too see if it'll lose up but won't budge even with some mallet hits.

    Has anyone had experience with these, am I doing something wrong aka does it need to be in gear or something, or is it just seized on the shaft?Click image for larger version.

    It is seized on the shaft.-------In the future take the prop off every 3 months or so and grease the splines.
