I can't get my front drive line off, it's unbolted, but not no budgy. just hit the poo out of it with a rubber mallet or is there a trick?

By drive line you are referring to the front drive shaft I assume?? If so find a dead blow hammer and hit it harder or a chuck of wood and a steel hammer. You could use a chisel to loosen it up. Heat it up a little, not to much and then hit it with some WD40 and let it soak in a bit. They can be hard as hell to get loose. Goodluck.

Oh try rotating it and hitting it from opposite sides.

hammers work good on driveshafts. or chock the tires real good and try tapping the throttle a little. not much you wouldnt want the shaft flying around down there, but the engine is gonna make a hell of a lot more power than you can
