Just did the same job a few months ago.
What is keeping your overdrive on is a small spring ring that holds
the pump cam in place on the end of the transmission mainshaft. If you have
a Moss catalog , look at the early overdrive parts breakdown near or on page
24. The spring ring I'm referring to is item # 47 and the cam is item # 45
part #'s 466-655 and 466-650. In my overdrive the spring ring  groove on the
mainshaft is round but still would not easily pull off the shaft so I had to
separate the od at the brake ring in order to loosen the spring ring.  Good
Luck !!
