Shaft removal

I am waiting on bushings. I was standing outside looking at boat and it dawned on me that the damn shaft won't make it by the rudder. The rudder is offset, 93 prostar. Will it slide out just past the rudder? Surely it doesn't come out engine side.

If it won't slide past it isn't that much of a job to remove the rudder. Probably just one bolt and a cotter pin. That all mine is on my 197. Took me 10 min to change my rudder

Shaft Removal

Thank you. I will try getting it past, it will be close. Now that rudder removal might happen I should have ordered o rings for it.

It should slide right past the rudder as long as it's straight

Thank you sir. I am hoping so. It will be close. Once I get my bushings which I went for the Vesconite vs. brass and rubber I think I am ready to knock it out. The only thing I need to do is go up to the hardware store and get a threaded blot or rod and some washers and nuts to install new bushings.
