    Can one easily remove the input shaft from an NP241 through the front of the case? I have the retainer plate off and the two lock rings out. There is a significant amount of end play in the input shaft but the bearing is refusing to move.

    Is there something I'm missing?

    Can I even take the input shaft out of the front of the case?

    Should I shut up and get a bigger hammer?

    Dont use a bigger hammer! Why not split the cases? or am I missing something here. I dont think that shaft will come out oterwise.

    I said the hell with it for the night. I don't want to open up the case because that's an absolute **** ton of work to replace an input shaft. Especially considering I have to switch it to another case which has to work. So that means I have to break down and rebuild two 241's on Saturday. Faaaaaaaaaannnnnntaaaaaaaastic.

    Its been a few monthes since i did mine but i believe you half to split the case.. there is a snap ring on the rear of the case in the tailhousing also that you half to remove... getting it back together (if you somehow got it apart without splitting the case) would be a bear... no way of telling if you got everything back where it goes...
