Ok, that explains it, Richard. You will need to remove that gear from the pumpshaft before being able to remove the mounting plate. There will be a split (cotter) pin retaining the gear to the shaft. It may be difficult to gain access to remove it, but that pin retains the gear to the shaft. It is located between the gear teeth and the mounting plate and fits thru the gear and shaft. Once the gear is removed, you will be able to slacken and remove the four nuts holding the mounting plate to the pump. Another thought is that if you are not intending to refit the auxillary pump, as the multi-power is inoperative, you may be able to "trim" the plate with a narrow disc, to allow clearance. A little left of field I know, but it may save you having to split the tractor, and provided you wash the housing out thoroughly before reassembly, it could be the way to go. Just a thought, Evan.
