I have several props and several hubs, prop nuts and locking bits.

Changing from the raker to a rev4. The rev4 will not sit back enough to get a nut on the prop shaft. I have another thrust washer of equal thickness but it fits further back on the prop shaft, which allows the rev4 and flo torque system to appear to fit correctly. Is this ok to use or should the thrust washer always be in the same place on shaft? All the hype makes me worry

Ps L2 gearbox

Thrust washer fit is critical.  The thrust washer must be fully supported on the bevel of the propshaft.  If it's not, propshaft failure can result.  It's happened more times than I care to remember.

Did the Mercury/Quicksilver hub kit not come with a thrust waster?

If you order the right Quicksilver hub kit it should come with everything you need specifically made to fit the Evinrude V6 prop shaft.


I think this is the right one:

The prop shaft failure history is my concern.

Propnut. To be honest three props, The evinrude hub, the flotorque hub. Evinrude nut and pin, and merc nyloc and locking ring all came in a box with the props and 4 thrust washers of varying size. Two appear to be evinrude thrust washers. 1 looks the same but has a bigger internal diameter which allows it to travel further onto prop shaft and another which is about 3 times the thickness. This one doesn't rest in the back of my props so I discounted it.

With the two evinrude thrust washers the merc prop will not press on far enough and leaves a huge gap between gearbox and prop face.

I had a similar issue with a Powertech Prop with a a Mercury Flo Torque Hub. The issue was the thrust washer wasn't going all the way in to the prop.The area on the prop where the washer goes wasn't perfectly round and smooth. Grinded a little with a Dremel and banged in the washer with a plastic mallet. Problem solved

Banged the thrust washer in to the prop then installed prop on shaft.
