    From the Maintenence Manual... (Which can be found online
    under "Members Only" section in Amphicar.com)
    Forgive the typos, I guess I missed some in the process! DOH!

    REMOVING THE UNIVERSAL JOINT SHAFTS
    Unscrew the four fastening screws from the shaft flange as shown in
    figure 1 from the gearbox, ond remove shafts.

    REMOVING AND REPAIRING OF THE PROPELLER DRIVING UNIT
    Unscrew and remove the eight hexagon bolts with Double locking rings
    ond disc washers, using a 14 mm wrench as shown
    in figure 2, ond then draw the complete propeller shaft housing away
    together with oval gasket from the bilge .

    After cleaning, place the complete housing in a bench vice clamping
    between light metal jaws, to avoid damaging.

    Unscrew the small set screw in the cap nut, see figure 3, before
    removing nut, and by using the special tool AC 25 draw the
    propeller off from the shaft, see figure 4.

    Remove both keys from shaft, grease nipple, locking ring, ond then
    radial oil seals from housing.

    Using a bronze or light metal drift, drive the shaft out of the
    housing in the direction of the propeller.
    IMPORTANT
    While driving the shaft out, turn the shaft with one hand to ovoid
    the locking ring of the roller bearing inside ring from
    sitting behind the rollers, ond therefore preventing damaging the
    roller bearing.
    Remove the roller bearing inside ring from the shaft, ond from the
    housing remove the roller bearing outside ring and taper
    boll bearing, see figure 5.Clean all ports, and check for wear and
    damage.

    ASSEMBLING
    Fit the locking ring ond use the special tool AC 28 for fitting the
    roller bearing Inside ring on the shaft at the propeller end,
    figure 1.

    Clamp the shaft in a bench vice, and fit the following parts on the
    splined end of shaft:
    Locking ring. = a.
    Snug fit washer. = b.
    Toper ball bearing. = c.
    Snug fit washer. = d.
    Locking ring. = e.
    Place the shaft in a position free from dust until fitting. = f.

    Clamp the housing in a bench vice between light metal jaws, and fit
    the snug fit washer into the bare at the flange end of
    housing. Now take the already assembled shaft and fit into the
    housing inserting from the flange end and drive to the
    propeller direction, figure 2. Fit snug fit washer and locking ring.

    Using o long connection pipe attached to a hydraulic greasing unit,
    fill the housing with multi-purpose grease, until it comes
    through the ball bearing.

    Fit the roller bearing outside ring using special tool AC 26, and the
    locking ring.

    Remove and clean all surplus grease from bath ends of housing, and
    using special tool AC 26 together with AC 27 fit the
    radial oil seal, figure 3.

    Fit locking ring into housing at the propeller end.

    ATTENTION
    At the propeller end of the housing are two radial oil seals fitted
    in the following way:
    The inside radial oil seal lip must face to the inside of the
    housing. = a.
    Radial oil seal lip must face to the outside of the housing. = b.
    Fit locking ring.

    At the splined end of the shaft, the oil seal lip must face to the
    inside of the housing.

    Fit the grease nipple and grease. This will fill the room between
    bath radial oil seals.

    Fit both keys in the shaft, then propeller with cap nut

    NOTE
    To lock the cap nut after final tightening, bore a hole with a 0,098"
    (2,5 mm) diameter drill through the cop nut into the
    propeller, and then screw the fillister head screw into position.
    The propeller-driving unit is now completely re-assembled and ready
    for refitting into the vehicle, but always re-new oval
    gasket and Duba locking rings.

    IMPORTANT
    Always grease with Amsoil multi-purpose grease. On no account should
    track roller grease be used.

    Thanks for the instructions John!

    I seem to remember 4 special screws are used to hold the shaft
    on to the shaft flange of the gear box.

    Does anyone know what type of tool I will need to remove these?

    Thanks,
    Steve
