Welcome I'm Chris aka Moose

Use a piece of wood up against the shaft joint housing and hit that piece of wood with a large hammer to drive the shaft out while another also uses a pry bar to force it out. Do both at the same time. This should get the circlip to compress enough to get it out.

I try my best to be here everyday starting at 3pm central. Rating an answer is required. Please let me know if your not pleased prior to rating or if you cannot rate me so I can try to help a different way. God Bless and have a great day.

Thanks Chris
