WTB prop puller

I need to pull the 4 blade prop on my 197. Being cheap and don't want to pay $100 for a puller that I'm going to use once. Also, I don't get the 3 blade prop puller 4 blade prop puller, don't they both grab the back of the prop and tighten it against the shaft? Not sure what the differences would be....

Even better, who is in DFW that could lend me one for 5 minutes!!!! PM me! Thanks , Kevin.

You'll only use it once....until you ding it and need it again. I bought one years ago and dropping $100 didn't bother me much.

Spending $100 to have the proper tool to remove a $400 on a boat worth many thousands of dollars seems like money well spent to me.

Dont be that cheap... more than worth the cost of a fuel tank of gas... own a boat... own base set of proper tools... IMO... dont be that guy

The ACME c-clamp puller is for 3,4 and 5 blade props. However, there is a different puller based on the prop shaft size. Namely, the 1.25" shafts. The harmonic pullers are based on the thread size/pitch of the shaft.

Try a "dead blow" hammer and a block of wood.

I used the largest puller of this 3 puller set from Harbor freight.... was about $27? Barely fit, but worked for me.

I've had to use a torch to heat up the prop to get it off. Leave the prop nut on by a few threads, put tension on the puller, and heat the prop. When it goes, it pops. You might try heating it then tapping with a dead blow hammer or a block of wood/ hammer
