    Definitely not. You shouldn't run the ski until you get that addressed. That much play could be putting stress on both the engine and the pump.

    Quick and easy fix, loosen the 4 motor mount bolts and slide the motor back

    I did loosen the engine and moved it all the way back and it still has that gap.

    it looks like the shaft somehow got push back into the prop. remember the splines are at the end of the driveshaft, opposed to the fx , my suggestion pull the pump and see if you can push the shaft back , make sure none of the intermediate bearings froze , you will be able to see if the bearings when bad. the sad part , you need to pull the engine to get the driveshaft out.

    The thing was that I sucked a rope all the way in the hull. The bolts where frozen so I had to take everything apart and install new parts. So I guess when I installed the new bearing I installed it to forward. So that's why it had that big space. But took it out and fix it already. Thx guys for the help.
