If it is like the R-390 series or 75A-4, you don't have to do major surgery. 
I have done both receivers without removing the PTO from the receiver.  As I 
recall, I fabricated a tool to reach the slug adjustment and was able to do 
it with the PTO intact inside the receiver.  You may have to remove a 
sub-panel cover.  If you have a manual it should cover the procedure.
