Can I reuse prop bush
I bent a prop 150m off the beach in Muscat in 13 feet of water. Hit some concrete that was probably washed out of a wadi in the cyclone in 2007. Prop is on Johnson 105 Commercial, year 2000, prop Part no 391201, 14 1/2" x 19". Diagram on BRP Parts website. Pic doesn't show how badly the top right prop blade is bent.
I may be able to get a prop in Abu Dhabi at the weekend but cannot get the splined/rubber bush that goes inside. Prop is twice the price of same from USA but I need to be back in the water asap.
My question is can i remove the bush from the old prop and re-use it on a temporary basis unti lI can get the right parts from UK/USA. I guess this bad practice but may keep me on the water while I wait.
Also should I replace thrust bushing and prop nut spacers as a matter of course?
I am also hoping no damage to gearcase or driveshaft. Any advice welcome.
