I have a Volvo Penta
MD2040D and changed the anode yesterday while in the water
. When I put the prop back on the shaft, and then the screw on cone, There is a gap between the prop and cone of about 1 inch. It is as though the shaft is too long??? I have not taken out the shaft, is it a one piece shaft and gear
? Or a shaft, and a pressed on gear
. The bearing housing is securely connected to the S-drive. I was thinking that the only way the shaft could begin to extend is if the shaft is a multiply part, shaft and gear, and it is actually pulling away from the gear. There is no noticeable wobble on the shaft. It seems secure.
