You don't actually need to remove the lever, just let is slide down a bit; it only needs Ĺ inch or so to clear the body.
I should explore this option too

It is on the "To Do List"

I have marked the drive shaft with "Tippex" and will replace the rubber doughnut with a new one. I am buying from my parts from Classic Alfa.

Thank you for the tips Robert
