Drive Shaft/Splines Problem
Have an issue with a friends ski, he took it out a few days ago and had
something get stuck where the pump/impeller is, said he lost propulsion
but engine was still running and had it towed back to the marina. (I was not with him)
I pulled the pump out for him that night but there was no debris stuck anywhere
but noticed that the impeller was fine but the splines were gone on the drive shaft.
So my question is how big of a job is removing the drive shaft? does the
motor need to come out or can it stay in.
I've taken most things apart on my ski and his but have not played
around with the engine or drive shaft yet.
His ski is a 2008 RXT with 68 hrs.

If it has C clip design it is not so hard. You have to remove the C clip from the shaft / it is under stainless hat against your carbon ring/. In order to do that you have to slide the hat toward the rear of the boat compressing the bellows and once you see the clip take it off. Slide the hat toward the engine and pull the shaft, slow and easy. It will be good idea to jave someone to help. It will come off. First time there is not much fun involved but second time I did it all by muself in less than

Bring it together you MUST install NEW C clip and new rubber bumper at the engine end of the shaft. It is good idea to change the bellows and carbon ring since it is apart.

Take the time to pull the supercharger it gives you a lot more room to work down low in the hull.
