RXP Drive Shaft End Plug gone?
I pulled my pump and shaft to start with some winter projects and I noticed that the Drive shaft Plug on the end of the drive shaft was gone,
I could feel it, or pieces of it in the hole where the drive shaft goes, like it had just fell off from me trying to wiggle the shaft out,
any worries on getting all the pieces out?

You shouldn't have any issues get the broke drive shaft bumper out of the PTO coupler. Long needle nose or a sharp pick should do it. Consider replacing the seal in the coupler, and add a dab of silicone to the new rubber bumper (let it set up for a day) for the driveshaft.....it'll stay on the shaft the next time its removed.

The bearing that is in the middle of this picture came out with the shaft but the rubber piece stayed on the block,
should I take this rubber piece all the way out, or leave in alone,

Next time you need to remove the driveshaft simply tap the bearing with a suitable tool to loosen it from the driveshaft before pulling on the driveshaft.

Personally I had a hell of a time trying to clamp the bearing back into that rubber boot. Even with silicone, every time I squeezed the new clamps the damn bearing would pop out. I finally just replaced with a new boot & bearing setup. They come pre-clamped if you order them.

Shoot some compressed air into the hole - that usually blows the piece(s) out - I glue mine on also.

I just want to make sure I get all the pieces of the plug out,

9.5 times out of 10 it comes out in 1 piece.
