1 When space between
propeller and strut is too narrow to mount cutter:
1: Removal of a ring from strut boss the
width necessary to allow enough space for mounting cutter, including
any end play. Procedure is as follows:
a ring around strut allowing space for cutter and end play (Photos
#15, 16 and 17).
b) Cut strut through bearings stopping at rubber; using a knife,
cut through rubber and removing. Make a side cut before a complete
cut when propeller is not removed (Photo #18).
c) Remove ring and follow installation instructions.
2: Install SPURS Spacer between transmission
and shaft flange. A 1" spacer will lengthen shaft allowing
an additional 1" for cutter to be installed. (Photo #19).
Spacers are available through Spurs Marine:
Contact us for sizing. We will need the Make and Model # of your
SPURS" Spacers are solid steel, machined parallel within
.001 and are electroless nickel plated.
2 Too much space between
propeller and strut or stern tube:
#20). Contact manufacturer for special instructions. When a vessel
with an unusual arrangement is encountered , send drawings for
factory installation assistance. A zinc collar between propeller
and cutter will act as a filler.
