It will also be seen that the motor is tipped slightly so that it will come in line with the propeller-shaft.
The brass tube should be about 1/8 inch larger in diameter than the propeller-shaft.
A hole runs lengthwise in the brass, as shown, and a set-screw is used to hold the hub of the propeller-shaft.
The other end of the propeller-shaft rests in the skeg bearing.
The propeller-shaft is bent into a hook over which rubber bands are placed.
The propeller-shaft extends from the motor through the stern-tube.
The propeller-shaft bed plates were originally planned to be made of sheet metal with the flanges brazed to the web.
The strut that holds the propeller-shaft is shown in Fig. 91 .
The propeller-shaft requires a short piece of wire with one end bent into a hook (F, Fig. 56).
She was even admitted into the great tube of the propeller-shaft.
