Are you sure I have to remove the engine?
Check out this link http://www.lawnsite.com/search.php?searchid=4878368
Check page 10 (shown as page 8 on the actual manual)-Engine Deck
The clutch seems to be item 21, and held on only by 1 bolt (item 32)
It doesn't appear that I need to remove the engine, but maybe I don't understand something, am I right?
