Laser 2 on a 90 Yamaha

Hi guys.

So I bought a 20 pitch Laser 2 for the 90 Yamaha.

Big problem... the blades won't rotate as the trim tab is in the way!

What do people do to solve this?? Is there an alternative trim tab? Cut down the trim tab itself?

Sound advice would be appreciated!

Cheers

It will run fine without it ! Or cut off and grind it flat.
