I finally found time to crawl under my 88 quad and check on the driveline vibrations i have felt on deceleration at slow speeds. The centre support rubber material around the bearing has totally delaminated allowing the driveshaft to "flop around" at slow revolutions. I pulled the driveshaft [*&%%Y those nyloc nuts and bolts that some PO apparently overtightened]. Anyhow, upon seperating the halves I have to go find a 28mm thin walled socket to remove the main nut. My question is after i remove the yoke, is the bearing pressed on or will it come off the shaft fairly easily and do i need to have the new one pressed on or can it be driven or drifted onto the shaft will little persuasion? Thanks in advance as usual.

You will need a press to get them apart. Don't try the BFH method as it is easy to knock the driveshaft out of balance. Loosen the big nut but do not remove it. It will prevent half of the driveshaft becoming a projectile when it breaks loose in the press.
