Prop spacers.

Sorry if this question sounds silly but if you don't ask....

I have had the prop off for repair and now I am fitting it back on. Do you grease the spacers or do they go on dry as the shaft only seamed to have grease on it when I took it off. Thanks,

k.

I don't see any harm in greasing them up, I usually do, and at least they won't seize to the prop once they've been in he briney.....

Grease. All it does is prevent salt water from getting in and drying and seizing everything up.
