Before I start I know the sr4 is a turd but that's what I have. I am trying to remove the main shaft, I have removed the shaft for the counter shaft,reverse idler and shifter removed,the input shaft and removed the 3/4 synchro, now I am trying to remove the 3rd gear I can slide it froward but I can't get it out, the main shaft won't move up enough to get it out, I am stuck now, help

If its like other transmissions Ive worked on, You may need to drive out the rear bearing to allow room for the tilt of the main shaft to slide back, tilt up and clear to come out.

The T4/5 transmissions are the same way, knock the back output shaft out so you can move the main shaft back a bit to tilt up and out. Just remember to have the shaft in the case BEFORE putting the output shaft back in when assembling.
