Removing the input shaft on my H42 tranny FJ40, '76. Have the two snap rings off, and the front bearing. I *think* I've lined up the synchro and the countergear gear as it says in the Haynes manual (1975 FSM is silent to the method) as shown in the photo, but I guess not since it ain't coming off.

Synchro (left) and ? Lined up

The Haynes manual shows the counter first gear with a notch in it at the top (upper left of photo #37). Is that what I'm trying to line up?

Actually, I think I'm misidentifying the Counter Gear in my photo. What the first photo shows looks like the "clutch hub No 2". So I'm not sure what to align.

Dang, I'm confused. What do I do to allow the Input Shaft to slide off?

Further info. The shaft pulls out about 1/4" and then hits a hard stop. Something is blocking its exit, otherwise it would slide right out.

It is NOT the gear hitting the case....
 
You have to pull the cluster gear bearings and drop the cluster down into the case before you can pull the input and main shaft.

Aahhhh. I see that in the FSM now. Haynes had more words, which happened to be wrong, and I paid too much attention to that.
