I've already removed the collar, but I see no way to get to anything
unless the tube is pulled back from the tranny. Is there something I'm
missing?

Colleagues-- Could we have a basic tutorial on this torque tube? I don't
have a 39, but am interested in the mechanics of how it works and why this
is so difficult. Not doubting what you are saying, just unable to
visualize where the problems are. If this is simple, maybe someone could
teach all of us.
