Okay of all the vexing tasks that I circle back around to every few days, this has gone on the longest. I can not figure out how to get the splined burman worm shaft off the UJ. Since the splined connection at the pitman arm requires a gear puller, I can't see how I'm going to remove this one without some sort of mechanical advantage - yet I also can't see how to get a puller around the shaft. Help!

That red arrow on right , just to the left of that is a slot where a bolt went though. I that slot insert a fat old screwdriver or chisel to spread it so it can come off the shaft

Tried... failed. This thing is not budging.
How does the UJ come apart?

PB, check
Spread collar, check

How did you pull it? Just grab the thing and yank or tap back side with mallet?
