np231 front yoke case open

so i opened up my tcase to replace my chain and i was being dumb and lazy and i removed the tcase half and chain(which was badly streched) before taking the front yoke off, does anybody have any ideas as to how i would be able to remove the yoke without the chain attached? or how to get the new chain on with the front yoke and shaft still there. thanks for any help

Maybe try to get a pipe wrench on the base of the yoke tight and then jam the handle against the tub to hold it so you can get leverage on the nut?

24" Crescent wrench which you don't have but they are big and it works.

I just grab the yoke and hit the nut with an impact gun. Unless the nut is rusted in, it is not hard to remove.
