Nothing comes off the driveshaft, either end.
I figured one end would come loose, NOPE!!
The prop's supposed to just pull off, no amount of trying to drive it off with a brass drift and 3# hammer, even a steel drift wouldn't help.
Gonna get the hot wrench in there the first of the week.
Over 30hrs. just trying to see if the motor's locked.
It is.
I could turn the shaft back and forth a very tiny bit(vise grips).
Still need to get it apart to see if it's worth fix'n???

Finally got it tore down and what a MESSSSSS!!!!!!
Ended up cutting the ring and locking half circle out with a torch( drive shaft is still in the impeller)
The rear cyl. had a broken rocker arm, the corresponding valve was broken off and laying on top of the EXTREMELY abused piston.
The valve head was laying on top of the nickel sized hole in the piston.
Both the head and #3 piston looked like someone had taken a chisel and a 3# hammer and beat them for hours.
I have pics in my phone but don't know how to put them here.
The owner said time for a new/used block, I agreed.
