Propeller concern

Post by T Whyte » Sat Sep 01, 2012 4:10 pm

After a recent outing I noticed my prop had a side to side movement of about 2-3mm during my routine inspection. I understand they all have a bit of fwd and aft play but was a little concerned with the side to side play. If anyone could shed some light on this it would be greatly appreciated, instead of taking it in and getting told porky pies..the motor is an e-tec 225ho. Cheers Troy

Troy if you are running a BRP propeller and it has a TBX hub this is quite normal. My 200H.O done the same thing with the BRP Raker II and Renegade Bass propellers. Just the nature of the beast. When i didn't have that play i would get a light vibration in the motor a would pull the prop off and clean out the TBX hub set up and refit. Hope this helps
