Why would there be a taper on a prop shaft unless it's a slight one to make it easier to get the prop on? Unless of course it's to stop you putting the prop on the wrong way round............

I seemed to remember my Yam having a taper to locate the thrust washer on to. The Merc was a shoulder I think, the Evinrude....I don't know, but suspect a shoulder too.

I didn't think it was a reasonable question, in fact, I didn't think it was a serious question given you are a person who's made over 10,500 posts on a boating forum!

On my Rude I have a fabbed nut cover that has many slots in, this fits over the nut and so far I have always found a position to put the split pin in. If you want a photo I'll gladly take one for you.

I dont understand most of what was said. I just tighened the nut to a point where the split pint would go in. It seams to work fine
