It sounds like a spun hub on the prop... take a paint marker, or white out, and draw a line across the hub of the prop - basically, from the outside of the prop hub to the inside, and then run it again. If the lines don't match up afterwards, that's the problem.

If that's not the case, it might be a lower unit problem...

Marine man this is really embarrasing I'm sorry I forgot to include the fact that I checked the lower unit over today and didnt see anything obvious and this is the reason I checked it I went to drain the oil the other night and the only thing that looked like the drain plug to me also just so happened to be the shift linkage screw, but didn,t know it at the time so after this happened made me start thinking about that night when the screw wouldn't go back in like it came out until I wiggled the shift linkage a little will all of this make a difference to your origanal answer?

Did these things come with a splined shaft and prop or just the hub assembly you speak of and what is included in the hub assembly?

If you have forward neutral and reverse at idle, it sounds like you reinstalled the cradle pin correctly.

No, this does not have a splined hub. It is a rubber mounted hub with a insert that is fixed to the propeller shaft with a drive pin.

I too would check the hub to see if it is spun.

When reinstalling the prop and hardware it goes in this order:

1. propeller

2. washer - This must be installed between prop and pin

3. drive pin - through insert and prop shaft

4. prop nut secured with cotter pin.

    • If you consider the "thugs" as part of the protest group (which DC police even said they weren't, but only intended to do damage) then the answer is yes. The labeling of all because of the actions of a few is something I have and always will disagree with.
    • I clearly stated protest marches and not specifically the womens march. So,knowing that do you still disagree with me?
    • No where yesterday during the woman's march was there violence or racism exhibited. Intolerant towards things Trump wishes to eliminate yes. The damage by vandals occurred on Friday by a group of thugs who had only one purpose in mind and that was to destroy property and create trouble during the inauguration. (DC police even said that and they expected it.) Yes the Woman March did leave garbage to clean up, which can be expected. If you have ever had the experience of cleaning a (female) public restroom you would find out they have a problem with garbage cans. I'm sure most did take their signs with them in the same manner most ice-fisherman take their garbage off the lake with them, but there are some who don't. The top photo is the only one that is of the Woman March.   
    • Can you explain why you feel that way?    
    • I do believe you are out of line with the racist, intolerant, vandals comment.
    • I will slow it down. I did not say you said it was rigged. Your party,however went after Trump for not saying he would accept the election results and then turned around and in large numbers proclaimed they didn't accept the results. I don't expect you to understand the hypocrisy of that but at the same time it's there.   Conjecture. You don't have a single slice of evidence this is the case and you would be wise to retract it because it has no basis. None. Yet even though this is the sort of thing your party is outraged about by the right, you are actually more extreme about it on your side.    While there is direct evidence that the DNC blatantly rigged the Democrat primary in favor of Hillary and committed all manner of things that came out in the Podesta/DNC emails there was no outrage on your side over what they did. Yet you jump on Trump for something that was sold as truth when it was literally the same fake news the Dems have been pushing all cycle.    Considering the contributions that flowed into the Clinton campaign coffers in all manners it would be best to leave that sleeping dog lie.    In the meantime. you might want to take ownership of the mess that the racist, intolerant, vandals that made up the protest marches because you own that.    
    • i always thought they were about identical smoked  
    • Rumor has it they are running a story next week regarding ice fishing and CO. 
    • Looks like one to me. Nice catch  
    • I thought you lefties were against fake news.   Guess not so much anymore.   At least you haven't attacked Barron Trump, yet, unlike your fellow travelers.
