I have a 2000 90hp Johnson  (V4).


Question regarding the prop and hub.  I just put a new SS prop on this motor and noticed about 1/4" of play (front to back) on the spindle when the prop nut is fully tightened.


In other words, when the prop nut is fully tightened,  the prop can still slide back and forth about 1/4" or so on the spindle.  Is this normal or should the prop nut tighten snugly up against the hub?


I checked the original prop installed by the dealer and it has the same amount of play to it.


Thanks in advance!

Hello if shaft is moving with prop then play is normal.
