Re: CS 36T Prop Shaft Removal

If it's a typical Hurth V drive the shaft passes from the shaft log, under the engine and up through the Vdrive hollow coupling half,.. the shaft coupling half bolts to that.

The image above shows the shaft coming up and ending at the coupling half. No reason why a clean shaft wouldn't pull out in the direction of the arrow.. as long as zincs and prop are off.

I'd probably remove the coupling half to avoid mangling the liner/sole. You might run into a table??

Maybe easier than dropping the rudder.
