    Default Prop shaft question

    I'm coming from a Mastercraft so used to a splined shaft, but wondering if this looks right? The key has grooved into the strut a little if you look closely.

    That is not right at all. Whoever installed the prop did not seat the key in the shaft and prop correctly. You need to fix that IMMEDIATELY. Do not use it like that!

    That key is bent. I assume it's supposed to be straight right?

    Correct. It should be straight. I can see the key has already carved a groove into the strut. Nothing that affects its integrity but good you noticed it and corrected it. WHoever installed it does not have a clue what they were doing.

    So is there anything special you have to do to install it since it has that key? With the MC you just stick it on. Also do you know what size key I need? Looks like it is a 1/4" x 2.5". Didn't know if they called it a certain size
