Now that the front and rear bearings had been removed, we separated the input and main shafts. The roller bearings inside the relief of the input shaft will be replaced with new bearings from the rebuild kit. We pushed the input shaft forward as far as it would go, and pulled the main shaft as far back as it would go. The main shaft lifted out easily, but if yours doesn’t, don’t force it! A little finesse may be required. You don’t want to damage anything.
