Have you compared the splines from the old prop to the new prop?

Okay, this may be a really stupid question but here goes; You're not trying to put a 1" prop on a 1 1/8" shaft are you?

achieved success last night. it was a 2 man job. the end result was I put a mark on the prop and kept rotating prop spline by spline. I finally got engagement and prop went on but it was a long process. I had miked splines on shaft and prop and tolerances were within 20/1000. I used a magnifying glass and saw no burrs on either shaft or prop. all that I can say was it was tight. Eric did me a great Job by sending me a second prop when the 1st one wouldn't go on but fortunately the second one did.......
