    Flex Cable Question

    After completing 5 cartwheels at 60mph, I had to replace a bent stuffing tube.

    When I reassembled everything, it looks to me like the gap between the strut and propeller is quite big. (I can't remember what it looked like before I took everything apart)

    Would be nice if I was able to attach a picture, but I can't for some reason.

    You can move your strut back and forth & up and down to get you the right space between and the right tilt of your strut and prop. The distance between a strut and prop should be the diameter of the flex cable being used. As far as tilt, it depends on you, but I set mine 1mm lower than parallel when using the bottom of the boat as my reference.
