OK, I went out to the garage to take care of this. Took off the nuts at the
brake plate, and did a little whacking with the dead-blow hammer, but it just

overdrive portion - based on the diagrams, I am guessing that will not come
apart because of this very cam, but if it will come apart, let me know.
