Do the props have rubber hubs too? Or are they solid?
There is a newer 500 efi in a local shop that blew the couplers a couple of times. Turned out that the coupler that bolts to the flywheel was machined way off center from Mercury. If that is the case, Mercury should warrantee it.

That's the thing most are overlooking here.
My guess is they were off to begin with (it happens, even with offshore mounts) and the mechanic either didn't check the alignment because of the thinkng they were offshore mounts= pretty reliable, or the owner does hammer it hard.
No.I have only seen solid hubs on XR drives. The bronze hub with the teflon strips
he has 2 sets of merc lab props. It is not the props.........
US1 Fountain I am betting the same thing,to lazzy to ck
Wobble I figure the about .100 thou . ya never know they might of use a fork lift to push the on
Cuda I didnt look or ask it rubber was every were or smelt burnt.
Thanks again for the input.....
[QUOTE=Griff;2144574]I would also replace with the HD couplers used on the 575sci and up-#21 in the diagram.
That's what I'm thinking. Did the repair shop install the cheap generic crap you can get off the internet or genuine Merc HD couplers?
Transom or stringer failure could play in also but like was said before, the age of the boat should rule that out.
sounds like he tried to power out of the brush.
This time he was going across lake mapeu,la and it let loose a again. He idled about 5 mile and it got back up on plane then went out again after about 5 min's
