When I removed my prop I simply did a quick ratchet snap and that lossened the nut and enabled me to remove the prop.

Now is it the same way to install the prop or is there a certain torque spec the nut needs to be tightened to? Should the shaft be greased? Any other procedure I should be aware of?

Torque wrench in hand waiting your reply.............:D

Diito! This looks to be my next upgrade after the ballast install. I'm looking at that exact same prop as well.

Top end is barried on the speedo(haven't GPS'd top speed) so if the speedo is somewhat accurate 44-50mph in light chop.

Little bit of porposing in the mid range but can be cured with a little front ballast or people in the front.

Like I said earlier this is the PERFECT PROP for our application if you like to wakeboard, ski, surf, barefoot, and dare I say tube wars................:D

ohhh and it goes like a mother and sounds good too......:cool:
