Needing to replace a u-joint on the front of the drive shaft. I have it loose but there does not seem to be enough room to remove it. Will it come out without moving the engine or diff? Hoping someone has a tip of two.

I haven't had time to search for a manual yet, was hoping someone had removed one would have some pointers.

It happened so fast that it was a blur . :confuse:
Best I can tell Daniel removed the hydraulic lines to get enough room for the shaft to come off hydro pump. 10 mins and he was gone like a flash, Thank you Daniel :thumbs:
