Ok... So I've changed props several times on my 25yam 2 smoke.... Sometimes it was testing and tune.... other times it was due to an unfortunate mishap.

My question is is there a certain Torque or specific way to tighten your prop down.... More specifically 2013 Tohatsu 30 hp.


One of those unfortunate mishaps.... Hehehehe

Yes there will be a torque specification that the prop should be set to. It can be found in some owners manual and all shop manuals. Sorry I don't work on tohatsu or I would give you the specification.

Not as pissed as I was for having an unmarked pot..... Rope, but buoy must not have been tighed on very well.

There's normally a buoy attached to the other end to keep that from happening and to get a visual  :eek:

Really? That what they are for?? I thought they were there for us to slalom through
