As I was looking at that output shaft yoke thinking of changing it out I realized I have no idea how they get universal joints together. They look like something impossible to assemble. My only guess is that the arms of the yoke are somehow spread apart to get the U-joint in and then snapped back in place on them. I imagine that is a pretty high-force task, and one I am not surely equipped to do...
If you look in the inside of the yoke there is a grove with a circlip in it. Remove the circlip and carefully take the joint apart. There is probably a good YouTube on how to take it apart and put it back together. If you can't find anything then pm me and I can walk you thorough the process by phone.
