Changing a prop on a Yamaha 115 Four-Stroke

5 posts in this topic

Hey guys, we recent purchased a new propeller (housing) for our yamaha, and we're not sure how to go about getting the hub kit out of the old one? Probably a stupid/ignorant question, but a question nonetheless! Thanks for your help guys!

It depends on what kind of propeller you have on your boat already. Some of them Wont come out and some will. If it is a hustler propeller it will just drop right out if not then I’m guessing it won’t. Do you know what prop is on your boat?? What kind of prop did you buy??

I'm not sure to be honest, I think it's a yamaha stock prop, my dad was the one who bought it, and he has no idea. I'm trying to put a hustler on though. The hub kits look slightly different, so would I be better off just buying a hustler hub kit?

The stock prop only has a thrust washer. The Hustler must be installed with the proper hub kit for your motor. Most props do not use a hub kit.

Yes, Just go get a hustler hub kit. If the prop that is on your boat isnt a hustler then the hub kit wont fit anyways. So you are just better off getting a new one.

      A good ice fishing suit ( ice armor, striker gear etc) or waders just put layers underneth. That's what I would do.

      I hear ya on the ice safety.  I am trying to plan appropriately for possibly fishing in 3-6" of standing water.   Thanks guys!

      Hey guys!  Just started the a topic discussion for the Rainy River Conditions.  I did check the river today and there is some open water east of Birchdale Landing and posted some pictures of that Landing and Franz Jevne.  Thanks!

         I went and checked the river just before 9:00 am this morning.  The river is open just east of Birchdale with only a narrow spot open.  East of Franz Jevne (about 2 miles east of Birchdale) the River is almost completely open with some shore ice.  The temperature was 19 degrees and it looks like we are suppose to stay below freezing until Sunday with a high of 32 degrees and then it will get cold again.  It is hard to say how the river will open this year with cold weather coming again but here is what it looked like this morning.  Depending on the weather we may not go and check the river again until Monday sometime.   Where you can see pavement is the Birchdale Landing and the other access is at Franz Jevne:
