Need some help please on a propeller lock!

Recommended Posts

I bought a Ranger r72 not too long ago.  It is in immaculate condition with a 115 Evenrude  Intruder motor.  The dumb thing is in showroom condition and all of the manuals came with it.  The problem being that I don't know what is holding the prop on.  In the owners manual for the motor, in the previous owners handwriting, is "Prop Lock Western Wind followed  by a 15 digit number.  I have googled this to no avail.  The "lock" has a copper colored nose cone over the prop nut that has a slot in it about 3/8" long.  I have no clue how this set up is supposed to work, can anyone shed some light for me on it?  Thanks guys and gals, I am new to the bass boat world am discovering that my knowledge of 40 years ago is not serving me well!

Why not ask the guy you bought it from?  Or, maybe try a locksmith.  At least they'd have the tools to remove the locking device, even if it had to be cut off.

You should post a photo of the lock to see if somebody can ID it for you. 

 

I'd guess the slot is to insert a key to remove the cap while the 15 digit code is for key replacement purposes.
