Drive shaft came apart easy enough and looked as though it would've been good for a few more years, but it's cleaned up and ready to be installed.

FYI.... the bolts needed to remove the cover were M5×.8×40 or #10×30 both threaded in. Turns out my leak was from the gasket maker. It had been opened before. They used red RTV gasket maker. I know that stuff on sight. It leaked at the rear towards the lower .
I ended up doing mine last fall.
It's rather surprising how little holds it in place.
