    i'm really not trying to be a smartass or anthing, but that link and pdf oesnt answer my question in any way. i have the manual. i know how the pump is assembled. its the otherside of the coin i'm interested in. how to disasseble. and, is the shaft supposed to slide out of the stator housing easily or is there no way its coming out without a hydraulic press. do i need heat, etc. i've been told it may just slide out, i need to tap it out. just looking for a straight answer before i go at it. from some with experience. i dont know if mines just locked up for some reason or not, this is my first one and i dont know what to expect on a driveshaft. never had a problem with it before. its the weekend. its in my shop on a vice right now.

    In the PDF He is using a press to assembly the pump. So I would guess that you need a press to remove.

    i got it.
    i only needed a little bit of assistance.
    ok what we did is
    we made 2 stacks of concrete blocks, 4 high, on their sides. in a v shape.
    we put the housing from corner to corner, accross the tops of the blocks.
    thats the way to get the most grip out f the housing without putting any pressure or nicks into the flange that protrudes from the inside of the housing.
    then we grabbed a mallet. i stood at the open end of the v shaped blocks and tapped it, increasing pressure until it popped out.
    it stood up on end. so, there was no concern about the prop hitting the ground and bending.
    getting the new driveshaft in was easy.
    i greased the inside of the bearings with handy yamaha marine grease.
    removed three blocks from each stack.
    turned the stator housing over.
    slid the new driveshaft into the housing and tapped it in with the wooden handle of the mallet real easy until it was fully seated.
    it was much easier to get in than to remove it.
    i confirmed the manual specified measurements.
    then tightened down the bolt.
    thanks for all your help.
    i hope this helps someone else.
