Slide motor/gearbox replacement

Looking for assistance, mounting bolts broke off on KMG gearbox/motor for slide on 97 HR Endeavor. New one was delivered today from KMG. Does anyone know how to disconnect the transtorque bushing? Do you have to just loosen the locking nut or remove it. Also has anyone added an additional bracket on the motor side to help reinforce the gearbox? I found this Pic on another blog. Any help is appreciated trying to get the RV ready for the Talladega fall race.

On my Newmar I had to loosen the nut on a torque bushing slide it back and then take the motor and gearbox off. Yours does look a little different but might be the same in principle. Just trying to help. Jim
