Remove Chaindrive

Remove the chaindrive gear off the mainshaft along with anything else according to the directions. You may (depending on what year, make, model, and how the OEMs were feeling that day) need to press out a roller bearing inside of the chain gear to allow for the bigger mainshaft that rides metal to metal instead of on roller bearings. This type of setup is probably a little stronger than one equipped with roller bearings, and does not create a premature wear issue if proper lubrication is taking place.
