How to change prop?
Use a socket wrench to remove the recessed bolt, slip the old prop off and insert the new one. Tighten the bolt.
Instructions for changing the prop are included in the instruction manual for the Travel motor. The manual is available for download on the Torqeedo website. Follow instructions and be sure the pin locks securely in its groove on the prop.
If you go on Youtube and search it videos will come up showing how.
whats all the differences of the props they all got what and do what?
Props come in different diameters (twice the distance from the tip of one blade the the center) and pitches (distance forward the prop will move forward with one revolution with no slippage), both measured in inches. The torqeedo prop is 12x9.5 (12" diameter and 9.5" pitch) - it is plastic which is fairly soft (will not hold up to a lot of abuse, gets small dings easily) and is designed to only work with the torqeedo motor (though you can of course alter it to fit other motors if you have the right tools). I altered the one I purchased for use with a home made electric outboard and found no appreciable difference in efficiency between the torqeedo prop and the standard aluminum 9x11 prop I had been using.
It really depends on which model you have. Only one fits the model you have, for example, my Torquedo is the Travel 1003, so I ordered the TOR-1917. You really only have one choice based on the model and in the case of the Cruise R, looks like you must find the right serial number range to get the correct replacement propeller.Hope this helps.
What is the Torqeedo propeller shaft diameter?
I don't know
can these 3 blade props be used on the 403?
this I am not sure of . You have to match shaft size and find out your max diameter for rotation clearance. You can measurer hub depth and sometimes add washers if the shaft is to long . Good luck.
After install, the prop has a slight jiggle to it, very minimal. It ran well in the water though. Is this normal?
No play on the shaft on mine. Try removing it and make sure you installed it properly.
I actually installed it on a Masterspas H2X Swim Spa. Not a boat. The shaft diameter and cross-guide pin happened to fit perfectly. Does yours have the thin cross-guide pin (not sure what the real name for it is?)
I purchased the highspeed replacement propeller for my Torqeedo and installed it in June of 2012. There was no wiggle then nor now. It fits tightly.
I don't know but, I backed into a stump and it bent the propeller shaft at least 5 degrees. It (R2.0) still worked well propelling the 25 foot solar electric launch. The slight vibration was enough for me to investigate and find the bent shaft. If the propeller is on firmly I doubt I'd worry about it???
Be absolutely certain the shear pin is seated in its groove in the inner side of the prop. It is hard to know this for certain without the appropriate measurement. The prop may still be effective...but not for long. And then it stops functioning as the motor spins. It's a real design flaw, that is, being able to see that the pin is within its slot on the prop. Bottom line: the prop may not be fully seated.
Mine does jiggle, but I thought it had more to do with what I hit. I mean the cause of the stripped propeller. It seems to work, just noisier and I'm guess a little less efficiently that originally.
NO, it shouldn't shake when running. I found the new propeller a struggle to put on but once properly seated it should do well. Most likely, it wasn't put on tight enough all the way in. Check the install again since it sounds like it is out of alignment. Hope this help!!! Ken
Does the propellor shown here fit all Torqueedo motors, or are there different propellors for different motor models?
It's best to consult the Torqeedo website and to give them a call. I have two propellers that I got for a science project each fits a different shaft diameter.
Thanks. I will call and ask them.
The torqeedo-belux web site does a good job of explaining Torqeedo parts including propellers. There is an english language page or you can get most points from pictures in any language.
William, since they updated the motor 2 years ago. They have 2 different types of propellers. I would check the Torqeedo website or call them directly for the correct one.
Thanks everyone for the helpful advice.
Different models have different propellers. My Travel 1003 has a two bladed prop, for instance. Contact Torquedo N.A. At 815-444-8806 for information.
The two blade propellor fits on my Torqeedo 1003L and would work on the 1003S... I know that the three blade was not an option. Works great of course. My old one still works be has a couple chips from where it was dragged over rocks or hit things. Good luck. I think the three blade was on the kayak version of the Torqeedo.
Guys chasing the best propellor for my 2012model torqueedo cruise 4.0. Hoping to get the best top end speed, boat is. Currently a 4.2m aluminium boat with a over all weight of a out 700kg. Currently run with the TOR 1916 propellor but can only achieve around 10kph. Motor is running to about 4200watts which I believe is about right. I've been told I might get more speed with the older style Tor1915 ? Appreciate any advice on improving the overall speed.
SORRY I ONLY HAVE THE ULTRALITE MOTOR...MY OWN EXPERIENCE IS THAT SINCE THE PRODUCT ITSELF IS SO SINSITIVE TO ABNORMAL USE, I WOULD NOT MAKE ANY CHANGES BEFORE I ASK THE CO. FOR THEIR VIEWS....--==--THE ION BATTERY MIGHT LOCK OUT AND FREEZE,,,,THE CONTROLS ITSELF CAN TURN OFF THE MOTOR AND YOU HAVE TO WAIT A WHILE BEFORE IT WORKS AGAIN,,,,ANY DAMAGE CAN BE TIME CONSUMING TO REPAIR AND EXPENSIVE---[I HAVE A ION BATTERY OW THAT IS UNWORKABLE---AND A MOTOR THAT REFUSES TO TURN FOR A PROBLEM # 45 POPS UP ON MY CONTROL BOX EVERY TIME I TRY TO USE IT .....
the motor head turns with the steering linkage but the lower unit didn't Any Ideas?
If this is your initial installation, did you turn the lower unit 180 degrees per the diagram?
Is the clutch disc included? Our prop seems OK, the pin is bent but serviceable, but the clutch disc is shattered.
Regrettably no! The propeller comes with innerspring washer, cylindrical pin, outer spring washer and self-locking hexagonal nut. I believe the owner's manual has a parts list to help with ordering the clutch plate. Good Luck! Great little (big) engine and I'm sure you're anxious to get it back in the water.
I haven't replaced my prop yet so I can't claim to know what the clutch disc is but I did order this replacement part and it comes with two washers, a small pin, and a nylon lock nut.
Not with the propeller I got. I just got the propeller, two washers, and a replacement pin. - ELP
All the parts are included-the propeller, the cotter-pin and the disks. The old propeller was horrible to get off as the prop is tapered-we had to pull and pry. The new one fits on a lot easier but it fits on the cotter pin and must be perfectly aligned. I am not sure what you mean by the "clutch Disk" but the washers are all there. Let me know if you have any other questions.
"Not durable enough" is an understatement
If you have a cruise motor, unfortunately you should probably also have one of these on your boat. I did not and when I had a prop strike on a submerged rock I was stranded. The motor shut off (as it was supposed to) with the E45 code. After resetting it, I applied a bit of throttle, heard the motor whir, but got no propulsion. Further investigation revealed that the entire prop had shattered and there was not even the smallest bit of orange plastic left on the bare shaft. It also does not float. This brittle plastic prop (and the corresponding brittle plastic skeg) is one more major weakness of the cruise and other torqeedo motors. I now keep a spare of each on board (the skeg is about 35 bucks and is so fragile that it cant possibly provide adequate protection to the motor). If there was a metal version of either, i would gladly buy that instead. My overall experience with two torqeedos (1003L and Cruise 2.0) is that any failure, no matter how seemingly insignificant, is catastrophic; there's no fixing it on the water, you are stranded. With a gas & metal motor you can usually figure out a way to diagnose and fix most issues on the spot or at least with a visit from a mechanic. With the torqeedo, it's a mysterious black box that puts its own safety above that of the user. I no longer recommend them to anyone.
This prop cut my power consumption by a third and is much faster. I have a displacement hull so it didn't give me any more top speed but I can get hull speed at a lower power draw so it did effectively extend my range which I needed. This prop on my cruise 4 would easily power a small skiff or rowboat on plane.
Easy to install with metric sockets
The replacement propeller was easy to install. Owners might want to think about replacing sealing washers if used heavily in salt water. Mine were very corroded when I replaced the broken propeller. Had the propeller not broken I would have never notices until they stopped sealing. These are special washers I assume available from Torqeedo, although they are not listed as separate parts.
propeller is too delicate
The electric motor is light and fast but the propeller is soft and damages very easy almost just touching it.I use it on my sailboat to get in and out of my canal
