1954 1 Ton Center Bearing

I am in the process of finally starting this rebuild project after 6 years on hold. I am knocking out the U joints and need to pull the center bearing but am having issues with how it separates from the drive shaft. I am guessing the metal retainer on the shaft at the base of the splines has to come off??? Or does the whole carrier assembly slide off the end of the shaft??
Any help would be appreciated so I don't inadvertantly damage something.

The bearing is pressed on to the shaft, the silver cup is just a slinger, won't do much good to remove it, you'll still have to press the bearing off.

Here's a couple of illustrations that may help. I replaced the entire carrier bearing assembly on my 1954 3604. If you have a Shop Manual, it helps.
