  • Castle nut 3/8'' short of the cotter pin

    Can i use s.s. washers to make the castle nut line up with the cotter pin or will that effect the prop performance??

      2006 yamaha f90tlr i bought the prop from iboats its a hustler 21 pitch and hub kit 30 on the box it says that it fits a bunch of different motors. It seems like it wouldn't effect the prop any, i was just looking for some advice before i put the prop in the water and screw something up.

        Some come with their own thrust washer, or may need a different one from the engine OEM and you have to purchase it as an additional item. If so, remove your existing one and use the new one. Also check the washer ID to see if it is tapered. If so, ensure that you install it with the taper to match the taper on your prop shaft.
