I am trying to replace the belt for the hydromatic drive and need to remove the mower deck pulley and PTO clutch to access the pulley for the drive unit. When I try to remove the bolt holding the mower deck pulley and clutch the engine turns....anyone know how to do this?

Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

Thanks, the ren

The problem with the impact wrench method of removal is that you can't properly torque the bolt when reinstalling. What I've done is remove the sheet metal cover on the top of the engine and wedge a bar across the fins on the flywheel. Be sure the bar bears on the base of the fins, not the tips. You need to be careful that you go fully across the flywheel and pick up fins on both sides to prevent breaking one off. I usually use a very large screwdriver. This way you can both loosen and tighten the PTO bolt.

Use an impact wrench. Take it to a tire shop, if necessary.

Or stuff some soft cotton cord (clothes line cord) into the spark plug hole (leaving a length stick out to remove it).

When the piston comes up against the wad of cotton cord in the cylinder, it will be stopped in place, and you can wrench on the bolt that retains the clutch.
