propeller removal problem


Recommended Posts

Run it by your repair place or get a cheap wheel/gear puller. You can probably find one at Fleet or Northern.

I've got a 1966 18hp Evinrude Fast-Twin outboard. This is odd - I wanted to put a new propeller on and get old (original) one repaired. Went to remove the propeller last night and can't get it off! I've had the prop off before and it's always just come off easy. I broke a shear pin earlier this spring on it and I remember just pulling the cotter pin from the plastic cup on the outside (which I noticed is cracked now and needs replaced)and everything was plain in sight. Now - I pulled that pin, pulled the cup off and the prop will not budge. Am I completely missing something here? Granted it was getting dark but I feel like I'm losing it! I soaked it down w/ WD40 last nite and tapped around the backside w/ a piece of wood but no dice. ALSO -where will I find a new black plastic cup thing that fits on the outside? Any help would be great! Thanks --- this place is the best!
