Don't want to if I don't have to.
With the nut on the shaft for lifting and tapping you may have to get a second person to lift while you try to get a small pry bar behind the bearing and then give the shaft a good hard tap. The bearing race is on a spline on the shaft once you get it to move it will come easy . You have to go through the reverse when you put the bearing back with the new sleeve . I have never had to remove or loosen the rag joint but if you have to , so be it . Not an easy item to get at.
Perseverance is the word .
