You also need to clean the rust from the bottom of the motor in the opening for the bow thruster tube, then use a lot of waterproof grease. This clip from my Amel Book may help you:
that is a good tip to wriggle the propellor when trying to reconnect the 2 parts, I'll try it tomorrow. I always had it well oiled, and greased the area where the 2 parts join, but I never greased into the lower part or spline. I will also do that, as I see Nikimat also did it. Hopefully tomorrow will be less frustrating.
