Been fighting all night with the shaft. First the prop was stuck on like crazy. And it was off last season. It took a puller, heat, and a hammer on the puller to finally get it off. The coupler is another story. I got it to budge about 1/16" and broke two pullers in the process. Seriously considering taking a saw to the shaft and ordering a new one. It is definitely worn at the packing and at the strut. I will buy the biggest jaw puller I can find tomorrow and give it another shot. If I can get it apart I will definitely take it to a machine shop and have it checked for runout. As I said, one thing leads to another. Seems like the time to do it though.
