Stripped where drive shaft spline meets engine
I have installed a new prop, wear ring, water pumps and gaskets. Spline on shaft looks great and is not worn. But, when engine is cranked, there is a non metal on metal grinding sound and the prop doesnt turn. Is there a tranny for these things or is there a rubber type sline gromet that the spline fits into? I am about to operate on this thing when I get back home and was wondering if you had any pointers. Thank you.

Let everyone know what model/year you are speaking of, so folks can give you pointers specific to their experiences with your machine.
That said, it kinda sounds like you need to be pulling the midshaft assembly to see what the splines on that end look like.

u sure the new prop is not grinding on the ware ring or even locked up. There are dow pins for line up. Its a tight fit
