There is only one bolt that you will need to remove, in order to remove your pto clutch, and your drive belt pulley.

Disconnect your wiring connector from your pto clutch, before remove the bolt. If you have an impact wrench, use it to remove your bolt.

Remove the cable from your starter. Disconnect your fuel hose from your carburetor, and disconnect your main wiring connector. Also, remove your throttle/ choke cable from your carburetor. There is only (4) four bolt that secures your engine to your frame. Remove the bolts, then lift your engine off your frame.

You may have to remove your muffler, prior to removing your engine. You and I can continue from here.
