    Drive Shaft

    The drive shaft came out and I am having difficulty putting it back. I haven't tried forcing it, I don't want to do any damage.

    I looked in the S.M. and I cannot locate the section that deals with this part.

    Can you assist me in how best to get the drive shaft (if that's what's called) back into its place?

    Here's a picture:

    Thanks.
    Before you put it back squirt some grease inside the bearing carrier then use your finger sto spread it arround and pack it in,rub some on the drive shaft splines too. Then slide it back in, it has to engage the splines in the nose of your prop so you may have to rotate it to get it in. If the prop has the rubber nose cone in it then it can be a bit of a pain to get it back in. A long screwdriver stuck thru the nozel all the way up to the prop will help keep the prop from turnning so you can get the shaft positioned and in.
