I was hoping someone here could offer advice or assistance before I try contacting Native. This is my 3rd ultimate first with propel. Still have the other 2.
I purchased the brand new ultimate fx propel a few months ago from a local dealer. Unfortunately, I have tried to get the basic lube kit, some miscellaneous native branded parts, and tools for the kayak and drive. The dealer hasn't been helpful. Therefore I due what I typically due and order from Shop Get Outdoors.
My issue. When trying to remove the lower cartridge to grease I cannot get it budge using the appropriate Native recommended spanner wrench and pin. Any ideas on how to get this removed before I mess up the area where the pins go? I have made a homemade vice to keep the drive stable and protected and still have no success.
This lead me to try to see if the upper transmission caps are as tight as the lower cartridge. The left cap is easily removed as shown in the videos. The right cap is just as tight as the lower cartridge and I can not get it to budge. Any ideas? I would like to get this fixed without going to the extent of break bars, pipe wrenches, etc that others have in this forum.
Where the hell are the torque specifications? Please help.
