I just purchased a new prop and went to install it. I noticed that the prop nut has a small crack in it. I went and purchased another nut and when I went to install it I had a hard time getting it all the way on. Once it hit the lock-nut part I can barely move it. I feel I can really crank on it and get it on but I don't want to bend or do any damage to anything. Is a new prop nut always this difficult to put on the first time? What technique can I use to put it on without damaging anything?

Thanks

Shouldn't be any harder than a normal lock nut in my experience. Have a little ding in the shaft threads maybe?
