Today while changing my lower unit oil I pulled my prop to check for line around the shaft. The first thing I noticed was the nut did not seemed to be torqued very tight. Once I got everything off I notice the plastic sleeve that goes over the metal piece seemed to have light damage. The end that compresses next to the thrust washer seems to have spun a slight amount. I suspect it has slipped a due to improper torque. I don't know if that's what caused the damage but it does not look right and it needs to be replaced. All the other hardware is in perfect shape.
I done a google search and found a TBX hub kit but a kit contains everything and I was hoping I could just buy the sleeve. I was wondering if there is a part number for just only the sleeve.
Plus what is proper torque for a 24 Raler II on a E150HSLAAB.
