1996 Waveblaster - Doing some periodic maintance and since I have my pump on the bench, figured I'd check, clean, and lube the bearings. Can I press the shaft out from this end (back of ski)? The impeller is still on but it looks like I can press it out to get to bearings and then just press the shaft back in from the long end. The manual is a bit confussing, it shows removing the impeller and pushing from the long end of the shaft and then the next picture shows pressing from this end.. ??? I dont have the spline holding tool or socket for removing the impeller and I dont have any reason to take it off anyway if I can just press it out with impellar on. I want to make sure before I go putting pressure on it. Also, why is the end of the shaft threaded? There was nothing on it and I don't see anything thing that goes on it in the parts diagram. (see pic).
