Hello everyone.

Apparently one of the pinion bearings went out and broke some teeth off on the pinion and ring gears on my 50 Styleline Deluxe. I have the rear axle removed and have searched the internet but I did not find the help I am looking for. I need to get the propeller shaft (I think that is what they call it) removed so I can replace the front and rear bearings and possibly the bushings. Do you disassemble the torque tube from the transmission in order to remove the shaft with the pinion gear on it? I am learning as I go so please bear with me if I ask a stupid question.

This is the rear axle section of the shop manual. Start here:

If you don't have a print copy of the shop manual, they are not expensive and very worthwhile.

Good luck.

Welcome. It's pretty easy to swap the torque tube and center section assembly if you can find one. Lots of folks toss them when they do V8 swaps. You can do a search in this forum for a step by step posting. As stated, the manual is a big help.
