Ok, so I have the engine and transmission on an engine stand now. It has a roller or ball fourth main (not babbit). Do I need to take this off of the shaft of the clutch plate in order to take the transmission apart? It seems like a press fit.

No, you can unbolt the whole drive plate assembly from the brake drum. If something needs serviced in the drive plate assy like a new clutch spring, you'll have to take the ball bearing off.

I did that but it seems to be on there pretty tight and doesn't want to come off. Is there a keyway in there that I have to work around or is this a deal that requires some light taping with a hammer?

09-25 drive plates are usually easy to take off when you unbolt all the screws but the '26/'27 brake drum may have gunk on the inside in the rear that holds the drive plate stuck after unbolting, some scraping and tapping might be needed.

Ned,
Some are loctited to the shaft and they are a bear to pull.

Roger, thanks for the help. It is a 26 and had some build-up holding it on. Ended up coming off easy once once scraping around the drum. Finished off my already worn out puller with the part almost off so will have to get a new one of those. Thanks again.
