A few questions for you experts. Bought a hydro after 20 yr layoff and during inspection found the previous owner either did not space prop far
enough from the strut or prop coupler was loose and allowed prop to drive itself into the strut causing the pictured damage. Also looks like the prop
has a key way bushing installed to accommodate a 1" shaft.
Can this prop be rebuilt or is it toast ?
Is a bushing to resize to a 1" shaft common and / or safe ? Have never seen this before.
Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks Jeff
