I am currently unable to remove my prop on the boat because my prop puller will not fit. There is a gap between the prop and the strut that supports the prop shaft...my issue is that the puller will not fit into this gap. Someone suggested that I might be able to loosen, adjust/extend, and tighten the prop shaft in order to increase the gap between the prop and the strut. I guess the previous owner of the boat was lucky enough to never have to replace the prop, because I don't know how he got it off without some brute force which can't be good for the boat. Has anyone ever made this adjustment on their boat? If so, how hard was it to do and would you mind sharing how you did this for a V-Drive? I'm debating on whether to try this myself or spend he extra $ to take it to the MC dealership.
