I think that will work good. You may need to use some clear tape over the shaft to protect the oil seal on reassemlby.

Nice work. I am glad you do not have to split the case and have a workable solution!

If you look he has a hammer stuffed under the motor holding it up. You can tilt the motor and get it off.
