    well bought a new prop yesterday and some friends said take the lock nut off and the prop will pull off WRONG i had to cut the old one off so word to the wise take prop off at least once a year OR more to keep it greased up THAT WAS NO FUN :-/

    Theres a puller so you dont have to do that (cut the prop off). Use grease, not antiseize

    I would assume he meant he cut the prop off? lol
    either way, I'm sure there was an easier way of getting it off rather than cutting it......lol
