I have an 2007 Mastercraft X45 and I am changing the prop. I can't seem to get the prop splines to line up. This prop was on the boat so I know it is the right prop. Is there only one way it will fit or is there any trick to getting it on?

The prop is tapered too, are you attempting to install it backwards?

No the numbers that have the pitch and model are facing the back of the boat.

Do you know do the splines have to be aligned only one way or should they align many ways?

They are all equally spaced and it should slide on to any of them. Are there any large burrs on the prop shaft splines or in the prop?

Thanks for the tip on the splines. I was able to just take a block of wood and a hammer and align the splines and tap the prop into place. It went on fine. I just needed to know if the splines would align anywhere. Thanks for the tip it really helped.
