Small Propeller Hub Kit?

I spun the hub on my prop on my 15HP Yamaha this morning. The blades are in excellent condition so it seems a shame to throw this prop away, but I have not been able to find a hub kit for a prop this small on the internet. I suppose that it may not be considered worth the trouble to rehub a prop this small and they don't make replacement hubs for them. Does anyone know someone that makes hub kits for these props? I suspect I'm just going to have to buy a new prop, but I thought I'd ask first. The prop is a 9.25" x 10.5" 8 spline for a 2002 Yamaha 15hp 4 stroke if anyone needs that info.

Re: Small propeller hub kit?

Do you have any pictures of the hub and the prop too. Some of us have spare parts laying around. I even have an O/B antique collector right up the street here.

Re: Small propeller hub kit?

G'Day Bill,

In the past we've just taken our o/b props to the nearest propeller shop and had them press in a new bushing. It isn't something easily done at home... requires a big press and a special "funnel" to compress the rubber bushing as it is shoved into the hub.

Sometimes the prop cracks while pressing out the old bushing, so be warned!
