Only if your nut falls off first... :eek:


and then put the engine in reverse or slow down fast.
That'll pull the prop right off....

you need some of those red pre-flight flags you see on jet fighters, and don't fire up until you have collected them all.

Dave, honestly I couldn't tell you if there ever was one in there as I never checked it when I bought it. I never had a reason to take the prop off.

Looking at the pics in the original ad I can't make it out either. http://www.microskiff.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1224872570/7#7

But I have to ask, what the heck were you doing when the prop fell off? Were you floored in reverse or something?

I ran that motor down the canal by my house 14 miles one way a couple times and never had an issue.

I lost a troller prop once. I left the motor in the water while idleing from one light to another and then went to go use the TM and nothing.

Needless to say I wasn't to happy! :p

Figured out most of it ...It is a ratchetting action when you back off on the throttle That's when the nut comes off ...then the prop...

If any wants to look for it It is between the Two Power Towers at off the beach at phillippi ...

I will be putting a very basic how to on outboards that will cover all this ...
