coupler removal

Guys..quick question..looking for a write up on coupler removal..i have a 88 prostar. I had a nautique years ago and could use a deep well socket between the shaft coupler and tranny coupler then use two long bolts fastened between the two couplers to force the shaft coupler off...worked well...will this work on a keyed shaft mastercraft or is there a better way..considering i dont have a shaft puller..thanks guys!!

This is the method I use on my 84 stars and stripes with a keyed shaft. I used the bolts that fasten the shaft coupler and tranny coupler together to do the job however. Instead of using a socket, I just got a small stainless nut and turned it sideways between the shaft and the tranny. Worked like a charm. As soon as you make it move just a bit, it should come right off.
