I am looking at some reconditioned replacement propellers for my boat. My prop shaft size is 1& 3/8 in., the replacement props are 1 & 1/2 in. The local prop shop tells me that I can use a nylon reducer bushing to make up the size difference and that he sells them quite often. I have seen several prop shops on the internet that can supply these nylon bushings.

My concerns are them becoming loose or slipping.

Anybody have any thoughts or experiences regarding using these bushings to make up the difference in size?

I had a bronze bushing on an old inboard. It worked just fine.

I have used the nylon bushings for years with no problems.

1 1/4 to 1 3/8
