    Put some nylon rope down the PTO (back) cylinder plug hole to keep it from turning the crank. Then put a large wrench on it and turn. It's very tight, around 150 ft. lbs.

    You Don't Need To Swap Them.

    Edit: The 750 couple is preferred for performance.

    I HIGHLY suggest an engine pump alignment!!
    The shaft should align perfectly and go in and out of the coupler with ease.
    A misaligned driveshaft will cause premature failure of the impeller, coupler and/or driveshaft.

    I agree the shaft will slide easier into the newer style coupler, but it will go in the old style. My long pump driveshaft is fitted into the smaller old style coupler. You need to push really hard, but it will go.

    thanks for all the help guyz its helped me more than u can imagine i used the larger 780 one cause it slides in easier and im not 100% my alignment is perfect so i went with the looser fit so maybe less damage if its not aligned perfect
