it would seem you have pulled the shaft out of the final drive in the gear box, try gently rotating the shaft till it lines up with internal splines and goes back into the gearbox.....

The shaft is firmly seated. the boot when pulled back shows the round part of the shaft the " box" square on the end of tube houses both yokes with the U joint



My issue is how to raise the yoke to reinsert the splines from the driveshaft

I held the final up to the outside to check the measurement and it is in the right place

you just can see it or feel it because it is in the tube

you should be able to hook the uni with a piece of wire and slid forward, there is enough movement from the shaft inside the final drive to allow this.......

The yoke coming off the motor makes it hard to see past it to actually see the joint and then beyond that the other yoke that I am trying to line up.

Just a suggestion, if you have the ability to post some pics of the problem it might bring some help.
