Customer Question
JD 1020 3 cylinder...

JD 1020 3 cylinder gas. Want to replace the thermostat. Both bolts broke off. Top housing is off. Bolts broken below surface of lower housing. Do the bolts have to come out before the lower housing will come off. If lower housing is off I can get the broken bolts out. I can not get the lower housing off. How do I fix it?
