ok so i found a knocking noise in my pump, i found that where the end of the drive shaft meets the input shaft to the pump has a little bit of movement and makes a horrible knock, even when load is on it it make noise, where could i get a new drive shaft end, or if anyone has any ideas about making the noise go away, if i pack it with grease would that help?

You sure it's not the thrust bearing? The slop in the yoke should go away under load.

There is a common noise that usually goes away when underway (under a slight load) its likley simply some wear and combined looseness between the pump shaft male splines and drive line yoke female , this may manifest as a growning or "stacatto" knocking/clunking noise and can be heard at slow speed and its made worse by engine lope and low idle conditions These noise are also made worse with heavy impellers like bronze and stainless and solid mounts ,the fact that you say yours doesn't go away at all would be pause for concern for othe issues (brgs etc) .

a buddy had the same problem, and as cs19 said it was the thrust bearing, we pulled the pump out took it to shoe and he put a new one in.. problem was fixed after pump was put back in..
