Mark the D/L before you pull anything apart!

Can you post a pic of the carrier Brg? On Some of the early style Carrier Brg's you will need to knock out the U-joint to get to the bolt that holds on the yoke next to the Carrier brg, remove the bolt and yoke. Then you can use a press to remove the Brg. Alot of time these are not a TIGHT pressed fit and sometime even pull off by hand.

If it's the later style the Brg, it will just press off after you seperate the D/L. The later style is a tighter pressed fit and you may need use a press or Brg remover to get it off.

If your slip yoke has a Screw on cap don't forget to unscrew it before you try and seperate the D/L's

I woulnd't suggest using a torch ! If you scar up the surface where the Brg is pressed on,the new Brg will spin on the shaft and you WILL have a premature failure.

Again!!! Mark the D/L Before you seperate the 2 pieces! You want to put it back together the same way to avoid any vibration problems.
