Default Snout shaft removal problem

Guys,
I cannot get this shaft out for the life of me. I have to be doing something wrong. Ive got the nose drive off, pulley off. odd retaing clip. I saw its odd because I thought it would be a snap ring but its not. anyway i thought you could tap the shaft out with a rubber mallet but its not budging. This is a M62 btw...

Suggestions?

thanks in advance for any info.
Tom

IIRC, I was wailing on mine so hard I thought I'd break the handle on the mallet.

if your "taping" it be sure not to mushroom the end of the shaft

if i recale when i did mine 9before i had access to a press) i put a nut over the end of the shaft, put a large punch on the end, and hit hte punch with a Large ball peen hammer. 3-4 good hard whacks got it out with no damage.

knowing what i know now from doing it, i would say wait till you get to a press since you will need that to re-assemble anyway

I have acces to a press. I just thought I could do the seal replacement without it. Unfortunitly I think It does need bearings tho.

They make horrible grinding sounds when I spin it. Whats weird is when the nose was on the charger I couldnt hear them.

Mine aren't horrible but..however I recently experienced the same thing. Rebuild and use the press with Rollingperformance'* instructions. Looks easy enough.

If it won't tap out with a block of wood on the end to protect the end of the shaft and the threads, you need to use a press.

Take careful measurements of the 3-prong coupler plate'* depth in the oil chamber with respect to the gasket surface so you know after rebuild you got everything back. When you go to press things back together, the sequence wants to work against you. You'll know what I mean when you start doing it.
