if the back wheels are off the ground then the wheels are free to spin. the best way to do it would be tak it off the ramps undo the shaft bolts than put it back on. hard workin gettin it back on the ramps though.

with the rear end up the wheels can spin freely meaning your tailshaft will turn.. it WILL NOT turn while the back wheels are on the ground
