ok guys. I have the skid out. The chaincase off the 3 speedo control bolts out. The drive shaft is loose but it's too long to wiggle out. I go all the way clutch side as far as I can go and the drive sprockets hit the side of the tunnel and it won't go any further. What else do I have to do to get te driveshaft out? Can I tap on the shaft on the chaincase side to slide it out? or do i have to remove the speedo control completely.

that one might have a shaft that splits. look for an allen wrench set screw by the speedo side. loosen it, and then look for a set hole to put a punch in. punch it against the direction of rotation to loosen it. it's an eccentric cam type thing like a locking bearing collar. My 92 is like that.

However, i didn't do that. as mine was frozen. I was just short on clearance like 1/4inch from being able to get the darn thing outta there. had to take the chaincase off and somehow i eventually managed to pry it out.. hope that helps

ok do I need a puller to get the primary off? Cause this would be a lot easier without the primary in the way.

And so what I get it that the speedo bearing needs to come off. There were two allen set screws I pulled both them out already. Thinking it was an essentric locking color. then I pull the driveshaft out chaincase side or clutch side?

yeah if you can get those collars off and the bearing it's a lot easier. otherwise push it to the chaincase side and pull the speedo side down. Not sure if i'm answering your question adequately?

What sled to start? Tip the sled on the side, much easier to work on. I did mine yesterday!

Remove the speedo side bearing, cut the collar if you need too. If you have to use a gear puller put a small socket over the alum drive unit!
