well the splines on the prop shaft/coupler finally failed on me yesterday. Guess now I don't have a choice but to replace it all. Prop shaft currently just spins freely in the coupler. Fun times.
I guess I'll go with the newer style prop shaft that has a hole for a cotter pin, instead of using one with a Nyloc nut.
