Help Needed To Remove Prop Shaft

Good job, hanging in there my friend , I know it can be a daunting task.
But, also rewarding to DIY.
Freedom in that.😊

Re: Help Needed To Remove Prop Shaft

Well done!

It looks like the cut-through at the keeper slot was decisive.

Re: Help Needed To Remove Prop Shaft

If it helps, this is how I removed a very stubborn couple on my CS36T. Key was high tensile threaded rod. Soft metal rod (from local hardware store) allowed the nuts to compress the threads and the nuts jammed. All purchase extra SS nuts. you will round a few off in the process. Spacer to push shaft out was a 5/8 socket.

Fine threaded high grade bolts and nuts work well.

Re: Help Needed To Remove Prop Shaft

If you haven't done it already, may I suggest putting an anti-seize compound twixt your new coupling and the shaft. If the fit is too snug, then I would suggest taking some metal off the inside of the coupling.
