    05 stx 12f - stuck shaft

    Per previous posts... I am working on a 2005 STX12f - trying to get it running after many years of being dead. Engine is out of it.... and the drive line is stuck/will not turn. I proceeded to try to remove the pump although the shaft is stuck in the impeller and will not slide out. I did try to remove the intake grate although it is also stuck in place (too many years in salt water I guess). I cannot pull the shaft out of the hull because the engine coupler is on that end. Thus my issue - how do I get the thing out?

    Best to try to remove the coupler and/or is there another way?

    Thanks.

    Smoke wrench, you can try heating the nose of the prop if you can get in there. If you have to cut the shaft off I have a good used replacement.

    May be able to do it by yourself but... if you have 2 people it would be possible to un-thread the impeller from the pump. Then you would be able to send a dowel through the impeller and try to pop the shaft out. Use the coupler or the flats right behind it as a leverage point and hold the prop shaft at the back.
