I have the cover off and the 3 bolts out, Ive pryed on to the point of being afraid of breaking something. It has came out about 1/8or so. Is there something I missed or do they come out that hard? On my 88, once I got it started, it slid right out. I cant budge this one.

It should not be hard to remove the shaft, maybe the shaft is gaulded to the bearing in the PTO housing? I had a 77 that did that and I had to remove the PTO gear box.

   The bearing that supports the long shaft is part way into the Trans / Diff. housing (bearing that the cap that you took the three 3/8 bolts out of).   The housings are not aligned, PTO has shifted from use.   Loosen the four 1/2 bolts that hold the PTO housing to the Trans. / Diff. housing and tap the PTO housing around & shaft will come out.


   Install the long shaft & bearing before tightening the four 1/2 bolts when reassembling.

I've had to use a bar to pop them out. Put a tire iron behind the clutch pack and pry against the housing.

Take Randy's advice. I thought the same thing. A pry bar will do it. Once it pops it comes out easy.

If I take the 4 bolts loose to get it out, do I need to replace the gasket behind it since it was loosened??
