    Sl 650 Drive shaft stuck

    Hey guys Iv been working on this old 1995 sl 650, the last think I have to do before getting it on the water is put the pump back on, however I canít get the drive shaft to slide in all the way, as you see in the picture thereís still a bit of the teeth exposed that should go it but it wonít budge. Iv tried grease Iv tried wd40, Iím not sure what else to do. The teeth are in good shape on both ends so idk why it will not go in all the way, any suggestions?

    Inspect inside the driveshaft coupler. Look for debris jammed inside. And check the splines for damage.

    There should be a driveshaft bumper on the end of the driveshaft. Make sure there is not another bumper leftover still inside the coupler. An inspection mirror or smartphone camera with flash should let you see inside the coupler.

    Your splines are not lined up.

    1. Chock your trailer or PWC cart wheels (or attach trailer to your truck) so it cannot move.

    2. Apply a lot of pressure to your jet pump (pushing it in) while you slowly spin the impeller.

    3. If that doesn't work, try barely spinning the impeller and try pushing the pump in. Barely spin the impeller and push the pump in, try it again, and again until it pops in.

    It takes a lot of force to get it to go, that's why you need to make sure the ski doesn't move when pushing.

    It was odd with mine. The first time I re-assembled it I had to give it a good boot to get it to fully seat. The next time I had it apart it just slipped right together.
