    Default Prop Shaft Coupler Removal

    Here is a spare prop shaft and coupler I have and will show the coupler removal.

    Tools 5/8" wrenches
    3/16" allen wrench
    1 1/16" or 1" socket
    13/16" socket

    1. unscrew allen holding screw on coupler
    2. remove 5/8" coupler bolts
    3. push coupler away from vdrive and insert 1 or 1 1/16 socket and loosen coupler shaft bolt
    4. insert 13 /16 socket over shaft between shaft and vdrive plate , reinstall 2 coupler bolts and tighten slowly 1/16 turn at a time to pop coupler free from shaft.
    5. remove coupler bolts, unscrew coupler shaft bolt, slide coupler off WATCH FOR COUPLER SHAFT KEY.

    you will want to use shallow sockets due to space between coupler and vdrive but the illustration below gives you the idea

    So do you think a shaft could be changed out without removing the v-drive?

    Yes , but remove the prop first..........then the coupler the slide the shaft out thru the back.....that is why the rudder is offset from the shaft

    Does it slip right out of the seal and the strut?

    yes you just pull it out past the rudder. Tape the keyway ( also sand the edges of the key way so there are no burs to catch on the seal)and threads with electrical tape tight on keyway so you don't damage the shaft seal. I would put a socket of slightly large diam than shaft in seal to maintain its shape and make it easier to slip new shaft back in. lube old and new shaft so it slide easily thru shaft seal.
