drive shaft

I am trying to remove the drive shaft from my 36 Plymouth p1 coupe. Can someone please tell me how this is done? I have taken the bolts out of the flange at the differential and removed the rubber covers .I noticed the drive shaft moves back and forth from the differential and the transmission but not far enough to come out .Is there a procedure to this? Thanks again

Is the car suspended from the frame with the rear wheels hanging off the ground? This may give enough extra clearance to get the driveshaft out.
The trunnion joint is spring-loaded and may need to be compressed to go over the edge of the yoke? Mark the shaft, joints and yokes with a white paint dab so it goes back in the same way. 180° out-of-position may introduce a vibration. 8852LG07.gif
Do you have a factory service manual with pictures and procedures?
