Good engine - thus free bump.

Cannot help but ask - if this only ran 3 times, howcome the thrust collar looks like someone had it in a vice ?!

I used permanent Loctite to secure prop nut. Needed to hold trust collar with vice grip to get it off.

Just for future reference, Use 2 layers of Mutton cloth, or similar, between the vice grip teeth and hub, and it will protect the hub from damage :D
