    Prop hub

    Swapped my 24 Fury 3 for a 25 Tempest Plus on my Mercury 250 Pro XS 4S. When I took my prop off and removed the hub it was in fairly tight but didnít take much to get it out of the prop. When I put it in the Tempest, it seem to just fall right in place with zero friction or trouble? Does that seem right or do I need a different hub for the Tempest? I checked everything after I got it tightened back down and there is no play or slop in it.

    Those two props use the same hub kit. Did the rubber snubber strips come off of the insert? Look to make sure you have all of the rubber strips on the insert.



    Or do you have the new hub kit like this?

    The hub kits are the same for those two props.

    so should it have fell in to place as easy as it did? Or should it have some resistance to it?

    There are some slight variances between prop hubs.... You rubber snubbers are probably just compressed to fit the old prop.

    so is it safe to run the new tempest? Will the snubbers expand to tighten up the hub in the new prop?

    No they wont expand....Yes it is safe to run as long as you torque the prop nut to the proper specification.
