    I can clearly see metal balls from the bearing that are unseated, so unless you replace that part... it won't go in.

    so how did you get the shaft back in? did you replace the broken bearing? or did you get a replacement gearbox?

    Just binned old driveshaft. Got used replacement went straight in. Tried to get new but after paying for it, they were out of stock. Still got old gearbox. M32. It's last job before motor be working. I put decent oil in. Had loads of work done on it. Once finished in doing before and after pics..
