The directions discribing how to remove the drive coupler i thought implied that you needed to unscrew the coupler. The first part of the directions discribed the the coupler was threaded counter clockwise and needed to turn clockwise to remove te coupler. The step by step directions discribed how to use the screw driver to lift the coupler then turn 1/4 turn then use the screw driver again. After a few tie trying to turn the coupler by hand and with a pair of pliers I realized that the couple was made out of a soft metal and was actually bending away from the drive shaft. once that was accomplished the rest of the directions made sense.
