Anybody got a prop puller around Chicago I can borrow? I'm in the southwest suburbs (Orland Park)... would ask to borrow one from anywhere, but by the time I pay shipping and toss some money out, I'll be over halfway to buying one :)

Willing to toss in some money, give a deposit, etc...

Thanks!

Even With A Puller....it Will Come Off Way Easier With A Little Heat. I Played Hell With Just A Puller On My 89

Applied A Little Heat And Came Right Off

Appreciate the advice. I'd just like to have a puller handy as well before I start this project... have a propane torch that should work fine for this.

I should mention that I work in Schaumburg, so I commute along the west suburbs every day...

If you have an 83 Hurst, I'll be more than happy to trade a prop puller for the car! :D

Hammer and 2x4 if all else fails.

Boat is going out this weekend for 4 days, I don't want to get stuck halfway with this project... I'm sure if I have a puller in the garage, it will come right off without even using it...

You'll want to use the puller, imo. Heat the hub of the prop with tension on it with the puller. Keep the nut on the shaft because when it springs free, it'll shoot off.
