I am trying to remove the propeller... I don't want to bang on stuff... So do I need a puller? And if so what kind and where do I get one... Any and all help would be great... Thanks guys for the help... Summer is here on the Texas Gulf Coast... Wake on.

This is a picture of the puller.

I'd also count the number of threads exposed on the shaft so you have an idea how far to turn the nut when you reassemble it.

go to search and you will find a lot of info on this. however in my opinion yes you do need to get a prop puller or borrow one from a dealer. i got mine from skidim.com.

just a bit of advice is to leave the nut on the shaft so when it breaks loose it does not hit your hand or the concrete. oooch..

Thanks guys for the help... I did mark the nut and counted the turns it took to take it off.. So how hard is it putting it back on? The prop that is... To get it back to the right spot?

Not very difficult.

But, having forgotten how many turns to tighten, I watched the progress of the prop onto the taper... it seemed like the prop should have been tight much sooner, but wasn't.
