Why does that matter? It has to be raised up either way, right?

And if it's a "screw" as you say, a wrench won't fit it. You need a screwdriver.

Can't you just reach through the discharge and try some different size wrenches on it from there?

Wouldn't that have been faster than starting a thread on it?

Then just take the deck cover off like mentioned below and apply various wrenches on the nut.

I use a 15/16 socket on my impact wrench over the nut and a 15/16 open end wrench over the head of the bolt. Very simple.

Its either a 3/4 or 15/16 bolt that threads into the bottom of the spindle bolt. You need to remove it from the bottom of the deck. Do not try to remove the longer bolt that runs through the spindle and holds the spindle on top.

You will need a socket, socket wrench, breaker bar, and block of wood if you are doing it by hand. Use the block of wood to keep the blade from rotating while you loosen.

If you have a impact just hold the end of the blade and it will come right off.

Pull the cover off the deck, There maybe a 15\16 nut there. I have never owned one of these mowers but the rest seem to be this size.

You can find the hex nut size in the parts manual. You can then figure out what wrench size.
