removed shear bolt, yoke wont budge. read that there may be snap ring on shaft, but don't see one. does appear to have notch for key stock, but does not appear to be any key. NO movement, forward, back or round and round. Pretty ancient, was already ancient when I bought it 15 years ago. Any suggestions are welcome.

Since you say it uses a shear bolt, soak it with penetrating oil for a few days and smack it with a hammer every now and then as well, then run it without the bolt in. It will loosen up, probably just rusted up.

Some yokes used with a shear bolt also had a small hole that a roll pin went in to keep the yoke from coming off the end of the shaft.

Never mind, bigger hammer was the correct answer...
