Prop maintenance.

I have cleaned my prop with wd40 and cleaned everything else up spacers etc I have read that it is recommended that you put a thin coat of grease over the shaft but do you also grease the stainless steel washer and brass spacer as well or do you put them on clean. Here's some pics to help explain what I mean thanks,

Not a problem if you do grease them up i do ,
it makes it easier for them to come off next time ,
Though you can get sand sticking to them .

Gentle reminder for those of us that are greasing up outboards (Don't use copper based grease eg copper slip , as it can cause your metal parts to disintegrate owing to galvanic corrosion .

Crikey Steve, that almost looks brand new, like its never been used

I use the BRP thick blue grease, sticks like whatsit to a blanket & doesn't emulsify or wash off, good stuff

The grease helps prevent sea water from filling the gaps and corroding or drying; the crystallization can distort the hub if allowed to go on long enough. The corrosion issue can make it impossible to remove the prop. No need to grease the washer, but the nut should be installed over a thick application.
