    Hello everyone,

    I'm currently working in a project / maintenance of a boat that has a Schottel Propulsion Jet such has (

    My question is, if anyone by experience knows if the "Propeller"can be removed through inlet grid and if there is any "trick". My system is rusty and i'm having hard time removing it through the "inlet grid".

    Already removed the inlet grid and screws tried to use propller puller but i'm having hard time...
    It's the correct way or there is another way to remove it ?
    Has i said the system is a bit rusty, if i "heat it" to try expand im afraid to damage some sealing that might be near.

    Thank you,

    The impeller comes out through the inlet grid. There is no "soft" material close to the bolts, so you can use some heat on the bolt heads (with normal care of course).
