Thanks for your response. Your nuts/bolts loosens counterclockwise. Have you tried using a cheater pipe?

Technician: Donald, Small Engine Technician replied 10 months ago

Use a block of wood to prevent your blade from turning, then use a cheater pipe to loosen your nut/bolt. If you have a blow torch, heating the area will also help.

Be careful, so that you don't round the corners on your nut/bolt.
