I'm slow. Took about 4 hours. Level gravel driveway, two sheets of plywood, one bottle jack, one floor jack, wedges to keep the front from tilting and 3/8 X 16 4" studs to line up the housings going back together. Don't slide in? Engage the PTO and turn the outside shaft.
Ring gear was in her oven, set on high 30 minutes, flywheel in freezer if possible.
Pull from oven with pliers, drop onto plywood on kitchen floor, two hammers and tap into position.
Let cool before handling it.
