MyUral.Com - my go to

Beginning to disassemble my transmission. The nut holding the coupling plate in place is recessed and very difficult to get to. Tried a few options and then said, “let’s go to the Oracle. “ Showed exactly how to remove the nut using a Tommy bar and hammer. Saved me a lot of frustration.

It looks ok on your 2011, but on both my 1993 and Martinas 2001 the seating surface for the nut in the coupler plate is too small in diameter. I turned this surface even and a bit wider on the lathe. For me a better feeling, The wrench fits better and I didn´t have this nut lose since over 15 years (since I did it). When I look at the upper picture, the factory has improved this during the years

I have a socket that I ground down to fit in there, but the tommy bar works, that's one reason IMZ put one in the tool roll.
The newer rigs (not sure what year it changed), have a Nylok nut, very difficult, maybe impossible to remove using this method, you're going to need a socket. For ease of service, I replaced the Nylok nut on my 2013 with a castlated nut from an earlier transmission, the cotter pin hole was still present in 2013.
If you have access to a metal lathe, I believe there is enough "meat" in the drive flange to open it up to accommodate a standard socket.

Many mechanical questions/problems people have can usually be solved with a trip to and a Soviet Steeds forum search.

Great English site that does a wonderful job of filling in the blanks in the printed service manual.
(Which I guess is pretty much non-existent)

Only problem I see is it hasn't been updated in 10 years, and let's hope it doesn't disappear. I already see some broken links here and there ...
