Well a while back on MTF someone showed how to weld a washer to the broken bolt, then I think a nut on the washer. Seemed to work for them to remove the remainder of the bolt.That is correct.. or as we call it out here.. anti clockwise...
Well.. UPDATE.. bolt snapped off..
So now the joy of getting that out ?
About two threads showing..
I guess il have to have a crack at welding a nut to this sucker..unless anyone else has a better idea?♀
Not sure if you seen my update..
The bolt broke?..
So now.. i have to get that out..
On discussion with an old guy last night.. we came to the conclusion that before i owned this mower.. it may have hit something..
Any how ... now todays mission.. try get old bolt out.. tell me.. if bolt is a yellowish color.. chances are its heat treated??
If it is just as easy to pull the motor than drain it, the fuel tank, and remove the battery so the tractor can be flipped over, then go for it. I've been able to elevate the front of the tractor to get access without all that fuss.Since the bolt is out the pulley can be removed. take it off and lift the engine out and place it on your bench where you can get at it.
