Due to bad maintenance
on my cat, the ZF folding props have seized on the shafts of the Nanni SD-10 drives.
A puller isn't shifting them easily, so I'm wondering if the shaft can be removed with the prop attached? It can then be fixed in a workshop.
I've undone the 2 keyed bolts behind the anode (which I chipped off!!) and can pull the assembly part way out, but it too appears to be stuck.
My question is - should the shaft pull straight out? Or does the prop have to come off first, so the shaft can be angled up to clear a bearing/something inside?
