Propeller and Shear Pin
Replacement
A shear pin is used to protect the
propeller and drive mechanism from
damage when the propeller strikes an
obstruction.
If the propeller is damaged by
striking a rock, or other obstacle,
replace the propeller.
Before replacing the propeller or the
shear pin, remove the emergency stop
switch clip from the emergency stop
switch to prevent any possibility of
the engine being started while you are
working with the propeller.
The propeller blades may have sharp
edges, so wear heavy gloves to
protect your hands.
Operating the outboard motor at
higher altitudes will reduce available
power. This may require decreasing
the propeller pitch to maintain correct
engine RPM.
