    100%! I cramp up easily now as well. I reluarly drink non sweetened electrolytes and always have chewables at the handy. Getting old is so much fun ....

You don't need to pull the shaft out, just slide it back enough to clear the seal but be careful as it will slide out all on its own! Take your time and don't rush. It's not a difficult job but it is stressful working in such tight quarters with very limited space to maneuver so just step out of the boat if you get frustrated.
    Great advice. Especially since i was getting impatient just disconnecting hoses this year! I would love to find a reliable shop somewhere nearby that i could trust but it doesn't seem to exist and i've never needed/wanted one till this job....I will just tackle it over several weekends and take it slow.

    If you were in Ohio, I would tell you to drive it over. Hope you can get it done or find a shop this winter.
    If you get stuck ask questions. More than happy to help.

    Midol!!! Best thing for heat cramps and headaches besides cooling, electrolytes, and hydration.

    Learned this from wildland handcrews. If hotshots and smokejumpers can take it without suffering any effects to their manhood, so can any other man.

    Thanks to everybody's advice, i started on this project yesterday. Everything went smoothly so far, but i only did the easy parts. I have removed the set screw but i did not have a socket big enough to remove the shaft nut on the inside of the coupler.

    Does anyone know the size of the nut inside the coupler? I will purchase a large size socket set but want to make sure the size i need is in there.

    Good to hear it is going well so far.
    Just keep going slow and take your time. Frustration breaks things and removing the coupler can cause frustration.

    Keep us updated.
