to get the center carrier bearing race off the shaft so a new bearing can be pressed on. Can a regular 3 arm puller do the trick? thanks for the info!

I am messing up with this...the center bearing, once the 2 shaft are disconnected, just slide out with few effort (if not rusted). BE CAREFULL !!! mark the position of the 2 shaft before taking them apart !!!!if not, it will shake as hell !!!!

You have to take the 2 section apart before, by removing the 24mm nut, that is the biggest part of the job, you may need to customize a wrench.

As mentioned, you may need to customize a wrench. I had to grind one to about half-thickness so it would fit. Also apply heat to the nut to soften the OE thread-locker. I learned this trick _after_ bending a 4' cheater pipe over the wrench, while two people sttod on it it keep it from moving. A little heat did the trick. Good luck!
