Pulling it out is best, but if you don't have any sort of puller, you can use a piece of 1" square tubing a drive it out.

I use a piece of 1" pipe and drive it out from the other end. Works every time.

Anthonie, unless they are worn awfully bad, I leave the Babbitt in there. I think it is a much better bearing if not worn out. KGB

If you really need to get it out drop a bolt into it and use the driveshaft as a slide hammer. With a little heat it should pop right out

Toon,

.010 play is too much. I would replace it.

Another easy way to do this, if you don't have a pipe long enough to reach in there, take an old steering shaft, put a couple of thick washers the right size on the end of the shaft, tighten down with a nut, grind four nicks to clear the rivets, a couple taps with a hammer and its out.

Thread drift!----- As heavy as the drive shaft is a small bend would throw it out of balance. How do you make it reasonably static balanced? Knife edge bearing surface to bearing surface?
