How do I disconnect the ice bin yoke from the shaft so I can

Resolved Question:

How do I disconnect the ice bin yoke from the shaft so I can install it onto the new ice bin?

You need to hold the shaft of the motor while unscrewing the yoke.
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
The shaft turns when I turn the yoke no matter how tightly I hold on. Where on the shaft can I grip to provide counter-torque?
Expert:  Dave replied 7 years ago.
Right behind the yoke, vise grips work well. Many of these have left-hand threads.
