Driveshaft re-install help!
Any tips on putting the shaft back in? I got it all lined up and into the pto bearing but when I go to put the c clip on, the spreader tool keeps pushing the bearing towards the engine. I just purchased the pto bearing holder tool to stop that but I cant find the drive shaft holder tool to stop it from moving towards the pump. Does anyone have that tool I can buy or borrow? I promise I will send it back!

put the pump on first. it will hold the shaft forward

I guess this driveshaft holder 529035986 is not needed then...

If you put the pump on with a regular 15 mm socket in the nose of the impeller (temporarily) all the tools become unnecessary... You tighten the pump nuts up just enough to be able to slide the hat back and install the c clip and then remove the pump, remove the socket, and continue as usual. I remove the c clip with the same trick.

How do you keep the pto bearing and boot from sliding towards the engine?

I use washers instead of a socket, but a socket will work.
Hell, I just grab the hat and boot and pull back hard and pop the clip on with the other hand. As long as the driveshaft isn't moving (sockets or washers), it's not too bad.

Yea I see the tell tale groove on the shaft, I think that's what its called. Well the boot pusher tool that I have expands in both directions so it pushes on the pto bearing. I ordered this ( see pic ) which I guess gives the tool something to push on other than the bearing. I will pop a socket in hopefully thur. and get these pumps in.
