88 Tempo-Half shaft replacement

Ok, I'm trying to replace the drivers side half shaft/ drive shaft because the CV Joint went out. I'm having trouble tapping it out of the hub (outboard), I've got the nut off, shouldn't it be relatively easy to knock the spline portion inboard? It seems to have seized, can anybody run me thru this procedure? perhaps I've missed something-once I get this portion loose all I have to do is pull the other end out of the tranny.

Thanks in advance.

Re: 88 Tempo-Half shaft replacement

IIRC, my ford manual says you need a puller.

If you have it out of the diff, I would just beat on it. Take a peice of wood and a sledge. You do run the risk of ruining the CV assembly this way, but if your replacing it anyways.

If it were me to do again. I'd pull it from the diff, try and sepreate the CV assembly at the outboard joint, and then just work the CV. A small diamater pipe may help. You don't want to mess up the sleeve deal that is around the nut.
