I managed to get the bottom brake mount unbolted so I could turn the whole brake band assembly up and apply a little heat to get the adjuster apart. I didn't realize the plates with the bolts and springs just fit in a slot and I could pull them out once they were loose. Maybe the clutch will pull out past the fuel tank but if I loosen the fuel tank to tilt it over a bit for more room, do I need to disconnect any lines? I'm sure I'll have to take the suction line off the hyd. tank but wondering about the lines going to the valve or if the whole valve assembly can just be unbolted?
Man was the pipe plug to get at the steering clutch bolts tight. I was just using a small propane torch but I tried heating around the outside of the plug with no luck. Then I just laid the torch on the track and let it heat the plug for about 3 minutes. After letting it cool for about 20 minutes, I finally got it loose using a 5 ft. snipe. I'm going to use some anti-seize when I put this thing back together but at least I'm making a little progress.
