    Unhappy I bent something!

    I took my motor out recently and I am done rebuilding it. I was screwing around cleaning my hull and noticed that the drive shaft wont turn 360

    I turn it either way and sticks kinda close to the same spot. Sounds like the prop is hitting/grinding something? I may have bent the driveshaft or ishaft while removing the motor. Where the heck do I start to look to see what I have to buy and replace??

    Check the engine alignment at the couplers, then check the wear ring for swelling.

    id be willing to bet the wear ring has a high spot and the impeller blade is hitting it as you turn the shaft

    +1. corrosion can build up between the liner and the housing and cause a high spot. The impeller will stick when a blade hits that spot.

    Pull the pump and inspect the wear ring [pump liner]

    Is this primarily a salt water issue or is that something us inlanders need to watch to?

    Cool

    more often salt water issue,but have seen it happen on some lake ski's (all most like calcium deposits) also another reason to seal pump sections when putting back together

    This is a common issue with the early models, Yamaha used a thin SST liner in the wear ring, eventualy corrosion gets between the liner and housing and causes it to swell. Look for dark spots on the liner where it has been rubbing the prop.
