Default Prop Removal

I have a Mercury 175 Verado. When I try to remove prop nut the whole shaft spins. Is there something I can do to stop this?

A block of wood between the prop and anti cav plate generally does the trick.

It shouldn't spin if the engine is in gear.

Did you have a mechanical problem that made you want to remove the prop? or is this maintenance?

Not sure if the smaller Verado's are like their 6 cylinder bigger brothers but with the DTS they won't engage the shift actuator unless the motors are running. He may have to disconnect the actuator under the cowling and manually move the shift shaft lever into gear.

Take it to the guy that's going to replace the hub.
