I don't remember using the socket tool- instead I think I used a punch to remove ad reinstall that bearing nut. You don't have to remove the inner case but it was a major PITA to replace the lower seal with it in. Use a little heat to warm casing around the bearings and they'll pop out and go in much easier. The biggest pita is the upper pto shaft bearing. If you buy that bearing already pressed on the shaft with a tcl you have to keep it perpendicular to shaft as you install it or the seals will pop off (a pain but I think cat sells a tool for this to keep it square). If you try to drive the bearing off and a new one on you'll need a special tool. OSP made a nice YouTube video for the XF1100 jackshaft install.
