I think I need a new prop hub adaptor thing a ma jiggy.

I have an older Force 75 with an Apollo stainless prop. It seemed exceptionally loose a few days ago. So I tightened it up, using my snap on Torque wrench. It is pretty accurate. I tightened it to 55 lbs. and the a tiny bit more to align the tabs on the lock. After about 40 hours of fishing. I noticed yesterday eyeing that the prop was slightly wiggly. So I removed the prop and the plastic flo torq adaptor is cracked in a few spots. Not seperated. Just cracked. I need to know from someone what part to get. It is a flo torq 2. I think. Probably spelled wrong. But I know it is an Apollo prop and a 98 model Force 75. It runs great. Gets on pad very quickly. And doesn't have any weird vibrations. If I didn't check and recheck I'd never know something was wrong.

if it's getting loose and cracking, you most likely dont have the forward bushing inside the
drive sleeve.
and or the thrust washer is wore out.

i'd call josh and get a whole new hub kit.. problem solved.
btw. the hub kit the a forward bushing has a torque spec of 100 ft lbs.
