Thanks TMC, i actually did WD-40 and heated it up, but I don't hink I used enough heat. Will have a go again tomorrow. I still want to try the XMP Revolution as well
Remember, you not warming a chocolate chip muffin here, put some heat to it, rotate the prop and continue rotating it heating the hub between the blades. Be sure to leave the nut on, but loose, cause when it pops off it will do so with some force or it will bounch off and into the rudder, prop guard and maybe even your hand.

You probably need to heat the prop with a torch. That's what I had to do. Tighten the puller and then heat the hub of the prop with torch. Keep the prop nut on by a few threads because when it breaks free it is gonna fly most likely.

A simple site search might have proved useful.

Sears doesn't sell a prop puller. Buy one or see if you can find a boater who'll let you use theirs. You have a gear puller and they aren't made to remove everything.

You're so right. From an earlier thread regarding removing a prop, another member had asked to borrow a prop puller and the large gear puller from Sears came up in conversation. I know many on the site who have used it with much success, and, in a pinch, proves to be a very effective alternative.

You know?....I always wondered about those ACME props......why the ribs? all other manufacturers are smooth I don't know much about hydro dynamics but it seems to me a smooth prop would cut through the water better than one with ribs I would think with the ribs it would create resistance and more prop wash.
