Re: Play in Brunson H6 prop blade
Thanks for the responses. I talked to Bruntons and they agree that it is either the adjustment nut or the bearings may have seated since the rebuild. We are planning on removing the prop in water, make the needed corrections on board (We have the complete rebuild kit on biard) and have the prop reinstalled in water. We have scheduled a diver recommended by a friend that has a boat in the marina nearby. Are there any issues that anyone knows that removing the propeller in water may create, other than the obvious losing of parts or prop?
We do have the original fixed prop on board, does anyone know if there are any adjustments to the drive system needed or can the original fixed prop be installed without any modification or issues?

When you replace the bearings there is adjustment to get the correct play which is locked by a locking ring, this may have come loose, assuming you don’t have a bearing problem.
I think it will be an ‘out of the water’ repair.
