Default RE: Stuck Prop nut


There are many ways "to skin a cat" and all the methods mentioned here will work. When I'm faced with this situation I remove the plug, dribble some fuel into the chamber to ensure hydraulic lock, replace the plug and remove the nut. Check the nut and shaft for any thread damage and use a tap or die if either thread is damaged to repair it.
