    Drive Shaft removal

    pump is off. It should just pull straight back correct? Looks like it's trying to pull the boot back with it

    Nope. I looked for clips too. There's notinh in the manual in the PTO section or driveline section about this crap. Is it under the accordian boot? Of so is there a common too to pry it back?

    It's under the top hat. You need to move the top hat to be able to see the c clip.

    Ok, the easy way.. You can do it two ways.
    1- put the pump back then look for the metal hat the c clip is right under. Now pull that hat back toward the pump it will slide a little and you will see the c clip. Remove with what ever you want and then you should be able to pull the shaft..

    2- put a socket inside the impeller right where the shaft goes then put pump back on, that will push the shaft a little more to the front and will give you more room to play with the hat. Then push the hat back and remove c clip.

    Now go get it done... Drink a beer and show your kids tha you can curse! Lol

    Fallow option 2 then put some wd 40 on shaft by the hat. Now put some gloves on and yank on it... This is the way I do it, no need for tool..

    lol thing will NOT budge. I ride 100% salt. I'm betting it's corroded. I hit it with PB blaster and WD and put a pry bar on it but didn't want to pry too hard.

    Anyone got any other tricks?
