ya don't necessarily have to remove the shaft, but the props gotta go. once that's done you should be able to remove the bearing housing. the bearing sleeve is pressed into this. at this point check the shaft where it works in the bearing for wear. if badly worn, more than a one thirty second of an inch step, then you should replace the shaft also........
