    Prop/Spinner Replacement

    Hi,

    I have a Firebird Stratos with a slightly damaged prop which I've decided to replace. Would you mind outlining the procedure for removal/replacement? Thanks a bunch.

    I haven't done this on the Stratus, but once you remove the spinner, you'll either see a nut to remove or just the shaft. Remove the nut and pull the prop off. If there is no nut, then the shaft is likely a press fit and you will need to carefully pry the prop off. Then push the new prop back on. Let us know if you have any other questions.

    Thanks, Jason. I finally got around to looking in to this today. It's a press fit. Am I correct in that I need to constrain the shaft will prying the old prop of? Seems like I'd damage the motor if I just start yanking on the prop. Any suggestions? What's the best way to find someone that has already done this?

    Regards,
    Bill

    Yes, you'll want to use a nice pair of pliers and hold the shaft while removing the prop. It shouldn't really take much force.
