I have an older Motorguide Tracker Pro-Series 40 that I'm trying to get the prop off of. Have taken the plastic prop nut off, but cannot get the prop off the shaft. Is there a trick to it I'm missing? I want to see if the props on either of my 2 transom mount TM's will fit it so I can take a spare with me on a little trip I'm taking next month.

FWIW, this isn't my video, but this is the TM I have.

I would try tapping the prop with a small hammer & block of wood, and pentrating oil. Prop is propbably corroded onto the shaft.

Sorry, forgot to update. Thanks for the replies!! I got it off with a little coercion from a rubber mallet. Found why it was so hard to remove. There must have been 100 yards of line on the shaft :shock:

It is a good idea to frequently remove a tm prop to check for line build up. Just in case . It hides under the prop robbing power.

More than robbing power, fishing line can cut through the prop seal and let water get into the motor. Braid is especially bad.
