    Question XL1200 pump install

    Went to put my new pump and prop in today and it just doesn't feel right going all the way in. Put driveshaft in till it engage coupler and then it still had another inch to mate up. If I put light pressure against it and then released it, it would spring back like something wasn't right.Any ideas on what I'm not doing right?

    lift the tounge of your ski in the air maybe you got water in the intermediate shaft hydrolocking not letting you put the driveshaft all the way in, or when you say new driveshaft is it the correct size check it against your old one.

    New prop and housing same driveshaft. Feels like I'm hitting rubber coupler.

    there is a couple of o rings inside the intermediate shaft, sometimes you can snag one in the way in, or if you put too much grease on the shaft it will cause it to do that also.

    pull the shaft back out and if you can shine a light up inside and make sure the o rings are still in place, they should be, they are fairly hard to dislodge.

    Ok o-rings are in place. Is it possible with grease in place that it's acting like a hydraulic lock?

    Yup....it's common what your going through also.....just have to work the grease out a wee bit and you can even take some big channel locks to pull the 2 together...just stay off the mating surfaces.
