Hi.

Picked up a Gori 2 blade and can't figure out how you would tighten it up on the shaft. The nut is housed deep inside the bore and won't slide out.

Thanks

There's not a lot of info on Gori installations on the web. Does this help?

BTW - make sure you use the specified grade of Loctite or you'll have a devil of a time getting the prop off for service.

Hi David

Thanks for that.

Yes I surfed a few months ago no joy.

Your results much better.

I received the prop post launch.

Crane only shows up twice and the next time will be October.

Was pondering doing a Buster Crabb (MI6)..Doh

That is installing with long snorkel.

I don't think a wrench can wiggle in the small gap.

Loctite on the setscrews. Can that be applied while submerged?

Cheers

Sensible divers don't take on tasks that involve tiny setscrews on top of setscrews. Nor do they undertake to juggle a hub, a shaft key, a shaft nut and blades. Or Loctite, which doesn't work under water.

Sorry you've missed your installation window, but do it once, do it right if you've not done it before, folding props are a mental and physical juggling act that need to be done on the hard. Otherwise you end up like a member of my club, who found his new prop had spun off somewhere between Trenton and Belleville.

Not a great role model, Cdr Crabb. More like an admonition.

I think your advice resembles the metaphor!

Thanks
