15 HP Yamaha Spun the Prop

Spun the prop today was trying to determine if you can remove the hub and install a hub kit. The prop itself is in great condition, otherwise I'd just buy a new prop. Can this be done on a stock 15 hp 2 stroke Yamaha?

Re: 15 HP Yamaha Spun the Prop

Hi,

I don't think you can buy a hub kit, it is all glued together. I had to buy a new prop for that engine. I am in Mexico, so it may be different in the first world...

Cheers, Eric

Re: 15 HP Yamaha Spun the Prop

Several years ago I bought a new prop and threw the old one away before being advised that any prop shop can re-hub them. I haven't had a need to verify this, but recommend you check it out....

Get a new prop, they're only $60. Get 2 and carry a spare or save the old one for emergencies, put a screw in the hub.

I should have added, "...for far less $$ than a new prop."

Re: 15 HP Yamaha Spun the Prop

We had our OB prop rehubbed in St. Marteen. Took 5 minutes and cost $20. The guy just pressed the old out and the new in with a hydraulic press. Any prop shop will have the hubs and can do it.

If cruising, one should always have a spare prop. If I were you, I would buy another prop and have the current one rehubbed and kept as a spare.

That's what I thought, but a prop shop here in Myrtle Beach told me you couldn't re hub it. The net search yielded mixed results as well, thus the question here. The next closest prop show is in Wilmington, NC, so I'll buy a new one here and hang on to the old one. Maybe when I get to Florida there may be more prop shops to call. I'm glad I asked the question because it made me realize I didn't have a spare and that surprised me because I have a spare for everything else. Thanks people!

Side note..Hey Mark where are you at now?

I tried to have my old Yamaha prop rehubbed in the states a couple of years ago with no success. It may be that the correct hubs for these props are simply not available in the US. I finally gave up and bought a new prop.

Re: 15 HP Yamaha Spun the Prop

It's getting like a lot of things, hubs can be pressed out and in, but a new Solas prop cost what maybe $60?
At some shops min labor is an hour, so add cost of the hub to 1 hour and I bet your all over $60, and you have a repaired old prop.

Don't throw it away, you might just find someone who will do it for $20

On edit, I just saw Vasco's post

About 10nm inbound to Green Turtle Cay Abacos - we left West Palm Beach yesterday.

It is possible that your specific prop doesn't use a replaceable rubber hub bushing, but most do.
