Sounds like you put the jam nut on backward. It needs to have the bevel side toward the prop, and actually looks a bit odd when you put it on, almost like it should be the other way around.  W

I was double guessing myself  so I pulled it off with the nut being on correct I put it back on all is ok now . Just don't understand what the nut was jamming on cause I torqued it to 45lb and it had the 1/4 of slop .  I don't know so I think trump had something to do with it lol thanks wingnuts saves me again
