Grease flanges on propeller shaft coupling?


Recommended Posts

Definitely not one of the usual winterizing steps and probably an overkill here.

I did this last winter when I checked the prop shaft alignment. (To check the alignment you have to loosen the 4 bolts on the coupler anyway.)

So I took the bolts off completely, separated the coupler, cleaned and re-painted the rusted transmission side of the coupler, greased the flanges and put everything back together using new self securing nuts. (Alignment had been fine though.)

Here you can see the rusted part of the coupler:
