You Can use the autoprop puller to remove the fixed prop.
Use the bolt holes, align with the base of the fixed prop blades and then “sew” the puller to the base of the blades using 5-7mm dynema.
Clearly less than ideal, but it works.

Thank you very much for your answer. The pictures are very useful!
In this case I need a lot of grease and some wood pieces to remove it with careful pushes from the front side.
The shaft is tapered with a key. The fixed propeller is also tapered. A tapered-shaft propeller will almost always need a prop-puller to remove. The AutoProp puller is not made for the fixed propeller.
In terms of performance, someone else will need to answer, but I am sure there is a difference and I am sure how much of a difference is a matter of opinion. Check here for more information: https://www.bruntonspropellers.com/autoprop

Does anyone experienced the performance of the Original Fixed Prop delivered by AMEL, compared to the Pruntons Autoprop?
@ Mohammad, et all
I have seen you installed the fix prop last year. How was the installation? Exactly as Bill believed?
How do you removed afterwards without puller? Was it easy to take it off?
Best regards and thanks

Just completed this install under water. Confirm that your depiction is the correct way of installing the fixed prop. Attached please find some pictures of our final installation. Sorry for the blank screens in the screen shots. I have 4 monitors, so that’s how it comes out. But it is easy to zoom in and get a clear picture.

I would appreciate it if someone who has installed the fixed prop will verify the image below and the correct way to lock the prop in place:
