I am a new member and need help removing the engine. I have read in the manual that I need to split the u-joint and I am not clear on this. my objective is to replace the clutch. I have been restoring WW2 military vehicle for the past 20 years or so and this is my first venture into a 28 chevy. Any advise will be welcome, critical pictures would help a lot. I thank you in advance for any help.

it helps to have the correct tools a hydraulic press, and or tools designed to remove u-joints
don't beat them with a hammer it almost always results in damage, use a tool or press

You don't need to remove the engine to do the clutch, you simply remove the seat and floor giving you access to the Uni, gearbox clutch and bell housing. First jack up one rear wheel to allow the tail shaft to rotate, the Uni is dead easy to undo, 4 bolts retain the bell collar, undo these then slip the collar and the bell cover back down the torque tube as far as it will go, then 4 nuts hold the uni cage together, this can be a bit tricky as it can be buried in grease, but put the engine in gear, and undo the bolts on the uni collar if needed take out of gear rotate the rear wheel to get better access to the uni collar bolts and repeat. once all 4 bolts are removed support the torque tube, the uni collar can be prised apart with a screwdriver, careful the "donuts" that make up the bearing of the uni may drop out, once apart you can then drop the torque tube down below the rear of the gearbox in a 28 will rest on the brake cross bars in pre 28 a milk crate is handy. now you can proceed to do the gear box removal, Ray

The original post is from August 2022. And the poster only made one post. Must have forgot where he posted his question.
