    Look at it this way dude...even if you bodger it up beyond any hope of making it work again, 203's are cheap and easy to find. The worst you'll do is learn something and have to spend an extra $50 for another 203. The best you'll do is complete the repair...and have something to be proud of!/forums/images/icons/cool.gif

    From what it looks like to me is that all you have to do is unbolt it from the main box, i know that the speedo gear has to be disconnected...there might be a ring or keeper holding something to the shaft...but like i said, my spare is already torn apart...got it from kennyw (minus the range box).

    I got it off it was just stuck on there ,I had to beat the thing for 20 min. and pry on it w/ a chisle...
    Now whats even more confusing is the t case aready has the part time kit installed on it so that means I just have to put the chain on and hope like hell that it was the only problem. When the hubs are free the front drive line still tuns WTF, w/ the part time kit in it should't do that right, there is something horrably wrong w/ my case.... /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif /forums/images/icons/confused.gif /forums/images/icons/confused.gif /forums/images/icons/confused.gif /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    might be that the old kit was installed wrong...i'd still put the new kit in also.

    I think they, didn't install the cvorrect spacer. Instructions read... 7. On 1973and early 74 models (mine says on the case 4/12/74 sounds early to me), remove the spacer from shaft and replace with later model (74-80) spacer.
    New question , How in the hell do you disengage the front output shaft from the chain? I unbolted the front plate( behind the front yoke) from the case and got it to move out about an 1" but thats it WTF.... /forums/images/icons/mad.gif

    Now this is just a guess, but it looks like all you have to do is take the nut off the front yoke and remove the yoke, then you should be able to pull that front cover off.

    you need to put some sort of strap around the yoke to hold it from spinning so you can get the nut off.

    I've got a block of wood between the yoke and the frame and that sucker still wont budge, on a lighter note I went to the dealer to get new gaskets and they don't make any of them anymore, they're all discontinued... LOL .... What next.... /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif

    on the gaskets, your guess is as good as mine, you may have to do some calling around or net surfing to find some...I didn't know about that part...you've got to get the nut off in order to get the yoke off....somehow.
