Crazy Tail Cone Action!
Pulled my pump for some soon to be installed upgrades. While I was at it, I thought I'd pull the tail cone just for giggles--had it off once and all was good. So I removed the three SHCS's from the tail cone and picked-up the drive shaft/stator (manual calls it an impeller duct?) assy by the drive shaft to stand her up while removing the tail cone.
When I got the assy at about a 45° angle, the tail cone popped-off and spewed an ugly sheeite on me. This happened in about a second.
Upon very close inspection, I see a flaw in the front seal. That's where I think the water came from.
I have two questions:
1. How do you get the drive shaft out of the stator or impeller duct? I hit it on the back side (after removing the nut and washer of course) and nothing moved. The serviced manual (pg 6-11) looks like it should come out that way.
2. Can I just flush/clean the bearings after removing the drive shaft and seals and reassemble with fresh lube?
I have awesome pics but my camera cable is at work.
Any thoughts? Any help is appreciated.

Holy Cow--From 2006! I didn't know the GP pump assy's were the same as mine.
I'll study the pdf more tomorrow.

After looking at the pump assembly thread, I am still wondering if I can remove the shaft and seals, flush/clean/dry the bearings, install new lube and then new seals?
Everything looks good in there but a bunch of water came out when the tail cap flew off.
