      This is a repair within reach.  I just swapprd my prop shaft in a 03 25 LSV and what I am not seeing on yours is how the trans output coupler is attached to the trans.  My shaft coupler is turned 180 degrees and that bell flange actually fits into the trans output coupler.  The shaft still comes through and bolts as yous does but it is definitely  possible to remove the prop shaft coupler and slide the shaft out whmatxh your prop on ruder but from there you should easily be able to tell what happened.  In your pick it looks like you are showing some sort of thraded peice jammed between the trans outout and the trans itselt.  The fact your prop shaft is showing between the trans output and shaft coupler is what has me puzzled any way to take a pic from the side or underneath.  I would love to see how that hooks up.

      This is not trans end. The vdrive bolts to the trans on other end. This is where the prop shaft come out upper end of vdrive. The flange in pic, it’s lower half bolts to vdrive output shaft with 4 smaller bolts that are put in from inside of vdrive. And then the prop shaft is through the middle and connects to upper half of pictured flange with the big nut and it has a keyway.  

      Its all pretty scarred up and I’m wondering if bolt heads can and may have fallen into vdrive.

      I heard about the new pipe on this thread so was wondering how they did it.    Looks awesome.   

      But now I see it's actually not that similar to mine.   Looks like they kept it coming out the traditional exhaust ports and then back up and then down again in front of the foil, via a cutout on the bracket maybe.   It's a sweet upgrade for sure... actually looks more like the surf pipe on the Axis through the manual wedge than mine.    

      Mine routed a little more direct... straight from the manifolds down through the wedge to the water.   Same result though and completely out of the way.   I never even added the "tear drop" shape (pinch the front of tube to reduce drag) because it doesn't spray and the pipe is transparent performance-wise, so we just left it.   Or at least any spray gets absorbed by the wedge/box.

      Thank you.   Partial credit to the DIY army over on Wake Garage for that.   Good dudes to learn from.    Wish I'd have done it last summer!!   

      Curious to hear more about the new PW3's other functions.     Does it get more lift?   I've never owned the PW2 but I do see the benefits of the lift for sure.    Wish I had one.

      Glad Malibu is listening to customers for the 2019s.    Boy are these boats are getting technically advanced!  :thumbup:

      You did an awesome job man, there is no doubt in that!

      Yeah with the new mounting behind higher you can get more angle for lift. They also adjusted the increments of wake shaping. In my experience across many PW2 Boats we never used anything past halfway between ramp and vert. So if they broaden that range, that is a huge improvement too. I don’t know anyone using anything near vert.

      I think @rugger made his own to route the same was PW3 does. Not sure if if it possible on PW2 though. The hydraulic actuator is complete re-positioned and so is the whole wedge itself.

      2019 captains chair is just like Nautiques. It’s very nice. I sat in it a lot on Friday. 

      Lsv is going to beat the gs surfing everyday of the week and twice on Sunday. Plus you get another foot of seating/storage. @G Spot skis his so many he can offer some insight for your 5% skiing.

      That is a sweet looking boat. I saw it last week when I was picking ours up. I’m 99% sure PW3 is not any bigger then PW2 but it is mounted higher with more angle so lift works better and the is more room for adjustment. Plus the surf pipe ticking in behind the foil.
