Hi Wally,My name is Dan. Once the covers are off, brakes disconnected/linkage disconnected, etc. with the machine tracks off the ground to allow the tracks to be turned manually in neutral, Remove all clutch drum assembly mounting bolts and turn the track to access all of them. On the side of the differential housing there should be a pipe plug to remove to access the bolts with an air impact one at a time. If not you need to get them from the top. Once removed and disconnected, lift our with a suitable lifting device and strap/ Let me know
