It came in my kit but my prop comes off easily so I have never used it. Why the question?

I've got a nibral one, just like it, I've used for over 20 years.
Works just like it's designed, especially with a little heat on the prop hub.

Do you polish it as often as the other stuff in your arsenal

Nope, it's just in my MC parts box, but I once knew someone who had one polished and put it out as part of his display at boat owners reunions, till someone stole it!

6 prop nuts, you should be good to go. With that set-up I would give the in the water prop change a whirl.

I don't carry the box in the boat, it weighs 80 pounds, but it would make for some good leveling ballast, we just carry it on long trips.
(1) polished brass, (1) Chrome Plated/polished brass, (2) plain Stainless steel and (2) polished stainless steel, all new and waiting to replace a used one.

Thanks guys! I need to purchase a new one and thought I'd go with the OJ. I've never used that style but looks simple. Simple is good!

FYI, I was told to just loosen the nut but leave it on, put some pressure on the puller and then tap the PULLER a bit with a hammer, then if needed add more pressure to the puller and repeat etc. This will prevent any damage to the end of the prop shaft, and you leave the nut on so the prop does fly off the end and/or damage the threads.

^^good advice.......that's the right way to do it.

Covi you'll have no problems with that puller. Always replace the lock nut and (stainless)cotter pin too.

If it still is refusing to pop loose, hit the shaft/prop hub in the front with some penetrating oil and take a hair dryer or heat gun to the hub areas between the blades (medium heat) and the heat will expand the hub and then it will pop off.

Here it is, the prop came off in 3 minutes flat. Easy, easy, easy. OJ prop puller works great! A lot easier than the other style prop pullers i've used in the past. Highly recommended.

PS Never used the rubber mallet.
