Prop removal

When removing the prop, do you guys disconnect the engine coupling first so there is no shock to the transmission?

Re: Prop removal

No, why should there be shock? Are you using a hammer?

Re: Prop removal

Johnny,

Please do not use a hammer. If you're pulling your prop to get serviced many prop shops will lend you a puller. A puller uses roughly equal and opposing forces to remove the prop so no shock will be transmitted to the shaft or forward to the coupling. Leave one of your shaft nuts on the last few threads on the shaft before pulling and all the excitement will be minimal.
