    There should be no spacing between the output shaft and prop shaft. The coupler should have equal amounts of each shaft inside and two shafts should be butted up against each other.

    There really shouldn't be a gap between the barrel of the prop and strut either. I'd say a 1/2 inch is acceptable depending on the power you have but would rather have about 1/8 of an inch or so. I can't get a prop puller on mine without loosening the coupler and sliding it back a lil.
