The knurling on the shaft is probably worn down (smooth). You might try shimming with some pop can strips or cut a slot in the shaft with a Dremel and insert a thin metal "key" (kind of like the link Stanton gave you to Lurker Carl's fix).

Gonna get some more 80-90 gear oil to put in it tonight. Thinking I might buy a cheap oil to run through it to clean the water out. Hope my bearings are ok!

Hy-Tran is formulated to absorb water. It's not cheap; much more than kerosene or diesel oil, but if you want to remove water from your tranmission safely, it's one way to do it. And you CAN just run that in your gear boxes, although I probably wouldn't, long-term. It can absorb something like 6% water.
