    I got it off now whats the best/easiest way to put my new one on?
    I have a 2 piece shaft in a '79 K20 465/205. I have a 20ton press but the shaft is too long to fit between the ram and my plates.

    Clamp the driveshaft in a vice and use a piece of pipe that grabs the inner race of the carrier bearing and tap it on.
