rebuilding 7 5/8\" diff

I am trying to install new thrust washers for the spider & side gears in the
aforementioned diff. But i cannot remove the left side gear (nearest the
ring gear). it feels like it has a lock ring on the other end, but none
of the diagrams that i saw show it. The gear does not go all the way
through the diff case. I tried hammering the gear out using the axle splines but
it doesn't budge. BTW, the gear rotates freely, just won't come out of
its spot more than 1/8". The right side gear came out easily.

any suggestions?
