However, when Bell increased the size of the transmission         persuasion. That was until a fellow wrench, Kevin H., showed me the light.

Jiggle the disc around while repeatedly stabbing the engine side of the shaft and lowering the transmission side. Sometimes engine oil lines, especially the #1 bearing scavenge line, will limit the vertical height you can lift the disc.
