Hope it works out for you DrB.
I think the others have given you good advice.
You might want a heads up, we pulled our coupling this weekend too.
I need to replace our seal as well, but we have a dripless.
Anyway, after pulling the coupler and the nut on the shaft that holds it I place (we don't have set screws from the sides, but the end of the shaft is threaded and a large retaining nut sits under the coupler), the shaft was still seized into the coupler. Our next step is to get a gear puller.
Even after you get the coupler removed, you MAY have another obstacle to over come like we found. Not saying its a given, but it could happen.

BTW, why would the yard charge you per day? Are you beyond your contracted storage agreement? I think mine is till the end of May.
