bearing carrier removal

i am working on a yamaha lower unit, trying to reseal it and the bearing carrier is not coming out.
I started out by bending the little tab in that prevents the bearing carrier nut from moving. THen the retainer nut needed to be drilled and split to get it off which was no problem.
After that i tried to pull out the bearing carrier with a two jaw puller. After a while of doing that with no luck i started to do it with hear, still no luck. I tried for a while longer and i guess after so many times i lost track of where i was putting the puller and put it in the mid section where the carrier is week and broke that part of the carrier. So now the only way i can get a grab on it is with a chain wrapped around it instead of the jaws but it still won't budge, anyone have any ideas other than shooting the drive?

i'll take another look, i still haven't gotten it to come out yet. I have the book too and it says it should come right out. The only thing small was a key which i removed before attempting to take out the bearing carrier. As far as i know the shifter and pinion gear don't have to be removed. I removed the shifter just incase and still wouldn't budge.
