Weird problem with Quicksilver prop
Just something to share if anyone else has similar.
I have a Quicksilver Silverado 13 x 18" Prop which uses one of these FloTorq Hubs to allow it to fit to any outboard make. I have the hub kit for Johnson Evinrude.
I recently had a new Etec 115 installed and it runs really and I fitted this prop to it well however at idle with forward or reverse engage I was getting a weird rattling noise from the lower unit that sounded like a problem with the leg or gearbox.
I took the engine back to the dealer and it turned out to be play in the FloTorq hub. It cost me a few quid to find this out as clearly not a warranty issue.
I have spoken to Julie at Steel development and apparently Quicksilver are bringing out a new FloTorq hub kit with a rubber insert rather than the hard plastic one currently supplied.
