Hello. My name is Tan.

There are 6 long bolts # ***** along the side of the exhaust housing. 3 on each side. Then you have 2 short bolts and 2 nuts in the front and 2 bolts in the rear.

Remove cover #22 & 25 to access all these bolts if you haven't already.

The power head should come off. Now due to the age of the engine many of these bolts are going to be corroded badly. You will need an acetylene/oxygen torch to heat the area around these bolts to get the bolts out.

Let me know if you need further assistance.

Thank you...Tan
