Volvo Duo Prop issue

10 posts in this topic

Rotating the prop by hand it hits in one spot.  Checked the shaft last summer and it seemed fine.  Is there a recommended place to have the props balanced or checked?

hitting another prop could be just the prop,  I would think if its hitting the drive then the shaft is bent and probably the prop.

Well, it almost goes with out saying. You hit something and bent the props.

I vote for a dial indicator reading at the end of the shaft.  Might get lucky.

Props should be bent to bend the shaft. So a check & straightening of the props is in order.

Sounds like you might have hit something last summer.

OPTION 1;You can take your props to your local dealer to have them sent to a prop shop.

OPTION 2 you could just find a prop shop yourself.
