Wow, Chuck.  Thanks to you and Bernie,  the bolt pushed the CV past the point I
had to keep the circlip spread and just a few tunks with my heavy rubber hammer
got it off easily.  I put the outer end of the axle in my parts washer and let
solvent run over it for a few minutes first.  That made it easy to see the
circlip.   My old Proto spreaders, something like this:    and the
bolt did the trick.
