Default Universal Joint Removal

So I just started taking apart my three-speed Ford toploader transmission and I cannot figure out, for the life of me, how to remove the universal joint from the back of the transmission. Can anyone advise me if I am missing something?

I have removed the bolt, but it won't come off. Figured there was something else I was missing.

Little heat and she popped right off. For the clutch shaft removal, do you grind off the clutch fork pin and slide the shaft out?

If laying rusty, penetrant, and a little torment with a hammer, take your time you're not sticking a nail into wood. Give the oil time to creep into the rust. Good luck. Welcome Neighbor.
