Yet another prop question...

3 posts in this topic

My boys had my prop rebuilt for my birthday. I hadn't taken the prop off before and now am unsure where all the parts go. I have a 2004 yamaha 90 and I think a Mercury prop. There is an insert inside the prop hub, a brass looking splined piece, a brass colored washer, the standard nut on the end and of course the cotter pin. I have it bolted together the way I think it goes....but would not like to have an unhappy experience on the water. Of course, the boys don't have an idea of how it looked when they took it apart. All my previous motors were OMC which only had the prop piece.

thanks

I replaced the oil seal on a 2003 90hp and put it back together in the order you did. But i have a large star pattern ring that i forgot where it goes. Does anyone know where or have a picture of the part sequnce? I was told that my prop is a merc.

Thanks

the star patter thing you mention is one of two possible items: The first one has flaps that bend up to hold the nut in place. I believe it is usually made of brass.

The second would be a spacer that goes between the prop and the nut itself so that the nut does not go too far down so the cotter pin won't do it's job.

I have the extension for it as well as a new set of blades that I bought but haven't needed to change yet. I also have a cabelas auger bag that it fits in.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.
