You can do it the hard way by removing the rear wheel and sliding the driveshaft towards the back....I think by doing that it is easier when putting it all back together....JMHO

I believe the manual says you have to remove the front bevel gear case. That would be the one with the big circular piece in front of the drive shaft. You will most likely need a new gasket when re-installing it. The drive shaft will then slide out the front of the frame piece. there will be a coil spring towards the rear of the shaft that will most likely have to be retrieved with a magnet.
On re-installation, that coil spring has to be on the rear of the shaft when it engages the rear final drive.

Engine Pull

No need to remove the drive shaft to pull the engine. Just remove the long bolts holding on the gear case and wiggle it out. This will expose the drive shaft splines. Just reverse the process after reinstalling the engine. Be sure to lubricate the drive shaft splines... If you are lucky, a gasket change ill not even be necessary.
