Default What did I screw up this time?

F225, 2003 Yamaha Four stroke

Dropped the lower unit to replace the impeller, no problems everything came apart and went back together easily

But I can not get the lower unit into the engine. I am pretty sure the top spline just wont line up but after nearly two hours of sweating, cursing, bleeding, cursing some more I finally gave up

What did I do wrong? I have had this lower unit off three times and never an issue getting it back together.

Any tips before I go crawling to a mechanic and beg them to work me in? (All have a four week wait since they were all shut down by the state due to covid)
