thank you. I am going to attempt it with the pitman arm in removed from the shaft. If I am lucky enough for this to happen, when I remove the flat sector plate, should I be able to remove the roller mech? Which way should I try to push the bearing and retainer out?

FIRST, to remove the sector shaft from the side of the box, the steering MUST be in the straight ahead position. Then, the sector roller will be straight up. Look at the pictures above, you will see that there is a notch in the steering box. This notch is to allow the roller to clear when coming out of the box.
Once the pitman arm is removed from the sector shaft, all that is needed for removal is to remove those 4 bolts. The side cover, sector shaft and roller all come out the side of the box as a unit.
Oh ya, and when you pull it out, get ready for a nasty, greasy mess!!!!
