Alright, I give up. I consider myself somewhat mechanically inclined but after two hours I cannot remove the v-drive coupling flange from the driveshaft. I'm trying to install a new dripless shaft seal and I'm now stuck. I tried my prop puller, a pulley tool, and beating on it with a hammer.
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated... I'm not ready to give up, but the boat kicked my *ss today.
