Don't suppose you have a prop pulling kit...? Makes it super easy, safe, and damage free. Check out www.skidim.com.

You need a prop puller to put pressure on the prop so it will pop off. Keep the nut on the end of the shaft to keep the prop from flying off when it goes. The best was to get it to "go" is to heat the heck out of it with a blowtorch. after about 10 min of evenly heating it, it will pop/fly off. If you dont have a prop puller, it is gonna be tough. YouTube videos are a great help.

take the nut all the way off. use a ball peen hammer to tap on the hub of the prop, it should only take a couple of hits to vibrate the prop loose from the splined shaft. once loose, you can turn the rudder all the way to one side and slide the prop off the shaft past the rudder. you only need a puller if you are using the old style tapered or keyed drive shafts.
easy peasy lemon squeezy

OP already indicated the prop was loosened on the shaft.
No puller, nor hammer, no blowtorch needed.
He needs help getting it past the rudder.

Since the rudder is offset, turn it so that you have maximum clearance from the end of the driveshaft. Rotate the prop as you pull towards the stern -- I forget which way -- and try angling the prop to one side and down once it's mostly off the splines. It should sort of rotate itself off the shaft.

At least that's what works on my X2.

This. Rotate it as you pull it off. It will work. It's like a jigsaw puzzle

You might need to remove the steering cable from the tiller arm so you can turn the rudder far enough to gain the clearance needed to get the prop off the shaft.

I have a 2010 X2 same thing. It only comes off when you turn the wheel all the way in one direction. I beleive it's left but not positive.

Be patient and don't get in a hurry turn the wheel all the way and start spinning the prop. It will fall out on it's on but it's a very small window. I just started spining it around and it fell partially thru then I pulled it out the rest of the way.


Same thing when placing it back on, it takes some time getting it at the right angle and etc... but it will work.

AnDo if nothING else works, just remove the rudder completely. That is not a hard task, just if you are doing it by you self, place something under the rudder that you do not drop it on the floor and damage it.

I had the Same Problem.
If you can't turn the Rudder far enough left or right..
Remove the cable/Ram from the Rudder Arm..
