    Leave the pump in place, use the drive shaft removal tool to move the floating ring, remove the circlip, take the pump off, pull the drive shaft out.

    Hulk says throw the driveshaft tool away

    With the pump in place stand at the back of your ski. Bend over and grab the sliding ring with both hands. Pull it back to expose the circlip. Once you slide the ring back you should be able to hold it in place with one hand. Use the other hand and a small screwdriver to pry the circlip out.

    Now, remove the pump, grasp the driveshaft and give it a good yank and it will come out

    But unless you have Hulk strength, save yourself several hours and get the tool and get it done in 5 minutes

    Mine was to tight to remove by hand, even after I removed the engine (I was doing this anyway) and pulled the driveshaft I had to hit it with a rubber hammer to get it to move.

    Using circlip plyers will also prevent possible mangling of the clip and let you reuse it.

    If there is oil still in the engine. will the oil drain out when you remove the drive shaft?

    Yes some will drain out..BUT if you tip your trailer forward with the nose of the ski pointing down you will loose very little...
