    how to remove coupler for driveshaft

    would anyone know how to remove the driveshaft coupler off of the end of the crankshaft. the engine is in the ski and crank is locked down and have the spline tool. I know it's suppose to be tight but already broke a few breaker bars. just wondering if there's a trick I'm missing. thanks

    I did this in the ski when I had to replace the stop sleeve (part 9 in the pic). Make sure you are turning it counter clockwise.... I think. It can be done. You will need a 3 foot breaker bar, but be careful because it will finally snap and it will sound/seem like you ripped the motor out. Just be sure to use the green loctite again when you put it back together http://www.wentite.com/jscs/ljgc/Product_640.pdf

    that's what I was doing, broke 2 craftsman breaker and one matco(I put a pipe on the end) . will try tom with snap-on.
    are you sure about the loctite? I thought I read in the manual that it was suppose to be anti-seize.
    thanks

    I thought the same as you but have been told otherwise. I personaly have not removed the coupler with the pto in place though. Your first pic kinda tells the story,
