    Hell, all I've ever used on gearboxes were snap ring pliers, soft face hammer, and brass drifts.

    Took mine to a tranny shop. Screwed around with it a bit, but it was taking too long/too much effort, tranny shop got them out/off in like 5 minutes. Was just a puller with a lot of reach.

    Easier to leave the snap ring in place, then pull it with that.

    My Craftsman gear puller customized

    There is some tool called a "clam shell puller" that is the proper tool for this job. Problem is I could never find one! /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif So I took a Craftsman puller that I had (pictured above) around, and shaved the claws to fit behind the snap rings in those bearings you have pictured.

    You of course have to pull the snap ring off the lower shaft (on the outside), and pull the retaining nut/ring/thingy off the top shaft. Its a real fun deal... but the best news is, you are almost there!

    Check out all my pics from the 465 rebuildHERE!

    Also, I think m_j has a 465 rebuild spec somewhere.... but I can't find it on his webshots site now. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    THat's the same puller I use!!! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif The only thing is I made two sets of bars that go from the rod too the claws... The new ones are twice as long so I could pull the gears off the output shaft once it was pulled out! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I used a puller almost exactly like that too. You can usually get the whole input/output shaft assembly to slide front to back a little in the case so that you can get some room behind the snap ring on the OD of the bearing for the jaws to grip. I did not have to modify the puller or use any other parts at all. It does not take a lot to pull the bearings off the shaft. They are not pressed on the shaft or into the case, just a very close tolerance fit.
