Yanmar KM3V "V" Drive

I have a Yanmar 3gmd engine with the KM3V "V" drive. Would anyone know how to align the coupling? Also, if I want to pull the engine, how do I disconnect the shaft from the engine.

It looks like the shaft comes through the transmission then makes the connection to the coupling. Looks like to pull the engine I would need to slide the propeller shaft about a foot to be able to pull the engine. Is this right?
