Default Neutral Safety Switch on an Aw-4

Any tips on how to take off the neutral safety switch on an Aw-4 transmission with out cracking the casing? I tried wood shims and I've heard using the nut as leverage but that isn't going to be good on the threads.

There's a lock washer with tabs on it that keep the nut from going anywhere . Fold the tabs and loosen the nut enough to get a screwdriver under it. It takes a some careful trying and prying, but you'll get it. Then you'll have to guide it off the shaft.
