    "Hey Everyone,

    New to the forum and looking for some help here. I have disassembled the lower unit on my 78 35HP and am trying to reassemble the prop shaft. To do this i need to install the detent balls and sprin on the prop shaft and then thread through the yoke and clutch dog but I am to understand I need special tool OMC P/N 328081. Does anyone know how to accomplish this without that tool? Attached is a picture with the prop shaft and clutch dog already installed outside of the lower unit. "
