It consists of an old c-clamp that I hacked the end off of, then I took a bearing collar and cut 1-1/8" out of it and welded the two together. Like I said it is pretty getto but I wasn't going to wait for a puller to get the new prop on.-Mark

This is my first year with a V-drive. I have a 2011 Outback V, my previous boats have been outboards. Can you please explain why a prop puller is neccessary? My lake (Powers Lake, WI) is really low this year and I hit the rock bar yesterday despite being well outside the bouys. (could be the 750 pounds of ballast in my port tank for wakesurfing!) My prop has a few pretty big dings. Boat seemed to run OK afterwards, but I am worried about performance for slalom skiing, so have decided to replace the prop. Looks to me like a big monkey wrench should do the job. Does the puller keep the shaft from being bent?

prop is pressure fitted onto a tapered shaft, so it gets really tight. You need something to basically push or pull it off the shaft after you loosen the nut.2006 Outback V - Gone
