the shaft coupler is pretty close to the trans coupler as far as alingnment..it could use a tweak as its not 100% lined up. when i disconnected the shaft coupler i expected the shaft to be able to be moved away from the trans coupler with a little effort..i had to grab the prop with both hands and twist it back and forth while pulling to get them to come apart...now that they are separated it still requires both hands to turn the prop. i ran the boat friday and no vibration and it behaved as expected. the boat is a fresh water boat and the strut is clean as can be..im stumped as i believe that the shaft should spin freely especially when disconnected from the trans...hell, even when connected it shouldnt take this much effort..thanks for the feedback and any ideas are appreciated!!!
