Drive Shaft Coupling Flange Removal
Anyone have a good method for separating the transmission coupling flange from the driveshaft on a 2001 SAN?

gear puller, penetrating lube, and MAYBE some heat from a propane torch if its really "stuck"
Lubricate and use some small wedges to drive between the flanges evenly. First one side and then the other.
Slide hammer that threads onto prop shaft.
Alberts or ARE has them in Oregon... The other trick I have seen, used on the single taper shafts, is to separate the transmission flange, and the prop shaft flange, put a short socket in between them, that just fits on the end of the prop shaft, and then use 4 longer bolts to couple the flanges back together.
Then, gently tighten them to place some pressure on the end of the propshaft.
Hook up the shaft puller, and wham away! Usually is out in about 20 or thirty slides.
Website for Alberts and A.R.E.
Would you pass along the website or other contact info for Alberts and A.R.E.? Looking for those tools but the search engines are not cooperating!

Thanks! looks like some fun on the board newwakesurfer!
RE: shaft puller
The slide hammer shaft puller that Skidim sells make this job a piece of cake especially on a V-drive!
Nearly impossible to do
I disconnected the flange from the transmission took the shaft out,took it to a engineering shop where they cut the shaft and used a high pressure punch to separate the two ,even the punch struggled to separate the drive shaft from the coupling flange
