Before you assemble the bearing setup on the drive shaft put the pinion gear on the drive shaft and tighten the nut down. Now take the nut back off. The gear should be tightly wedged on the drive. It should take a good whack on the back side of the gear with a brass hammer to get the gear off. This ...

You will need to use a later clutch hub with the three thrust washers. You will not need the thick disc anymore. I think the wide brake drum will fit in the pan without modifying anything. You will also need a 26/27 driven plate. The earlier one will not work on the wide drum.
