what tools do I need?

Going to the boat this weekend with my shiny new prop to try. What tools will I need to take off my ally prop off and put the SS one on. It may seem like a daft question but I haven't changed a prop before and the boat and manual are 110 miles away, thats a long way back for tools. The engine is an 18 month old 60hp Yamaha 4 stroke.

Ideally you need a prop wrench: http://www.steeldevelopments.com/erol.html and click on 'Accessories'. Alternatively a big spanner! You'll need to measure what size. You might also need a split pin, although you may be able to reuse the existing one. All the other parts (thrust washer, castellated nut, etc) should be reuseable. HTH

Nice one Tony! And don't forget to grease the spline well, using the same type of grease that was used previously. The two types of waterproof grease available are not compatible.

Edit: And nice one Jeff!

I think you'll find that you need a socket not a spanner.These should be part of the kit that is carried all the time when on the water.no prop,no go.

Socket or spanner.. Depends on the prop.. Removed mine recently to check the size, and used mole grips tied to my wrist.. That way I wasn't going to lose the nut as the rib was moored in the marina at the time..

How many diligently carry a spare prop and spanner whilst out and about but donít have a spare nut, split pin and thrust washer?

Been there, done that, learnt my lesson, wonít do it again.
