How do I remove an impeller shaft from the flange bearing assembly on a Craftsman snow blower?

I have a Craftsman Snow Blower model #917.881151. I need to remove the impeller shaft from the flange bearing assembly. I already pulled the pulley. That was simple, but the impeller shaft seems to be pressed into the bearing. How do I remove the impeller shaft with out messing anything up?

The flange bearing is not pressed onto the impeller shaft. I must assume that you have taken both gear box housings (key# 41&47) apart first or you're not going to be able to pull the impeller shaft out. You must separate the gear box in order to raise the shaft up over the worm gear (key#45) before you slide the impeller shaft (key#36) out of the gear box. See image below.
