My friend just dropped this off today for me to work on for him. He wants me to get it running again. It's been a few years since it has run and needs a few small things fixed like replacing the fuel pump and a bad key switch. There are also a few other small issued that need to be check out too but I can't remember them at the moment.

I got a lot done on the 1250 today. I had a key switch for a 1050 project so I borrowed that and put it in. The engine fired up and ran great for not being run in a couple years. I found a mouse nest under the flywheel cover so I looked for a way to take it off and found that I would have to either pull the front end off or pull the engine. I decided to pull the engine because the cooling fan for the hydro needs to be reattached to the driveshaft. I also had to pull the fender pan off and while taking the engine out I also pulled the wiring harness. After the engine was out I found one of the rubber motor mounts mas bad and spilt in two so I will have to replace that also.

Was the driveshaft stuck on the rear end? I know that can be a big problem.

No the driveshaft came out easy. The problem is that the cooling fan came off the driveshaft so it needs to be put back on.

That is a common thing, I also have had some with broken ones. While you have the shaft out, make sure you have grease fittings on your driveshaft. If you don't, I would advice putting new u joints on and balancing the shaft before installing it again.
