  • To grease or not to grease?

    Should I put grease on the prop shaft before installing prop on a 15 hp Evinrude? Thanks

      As Racer said, YES in salt. I'll go even further - Always grease the prop shaft, salt or fresh water.

      The old Merc in my sig was and is used exclusively in fresh water. When I removed the prop the first time, it was a bear. A little bit of grease would have helped way back when and doesn't hurt when I install/remove the prop today.

          Same as above. Always grease. No downside, many upsides.
