Taking the blade off an AC 160 mower?

Not sure when this thing was last sharpened, but I can tell it needs it... Would like to take the blade off, as best I have to do it with is a bench grinder. However, after crawling underneath, I was curious what bolts need to come out to take the blade off... Seems like it should be two separate blades, and that #1 and #6 bolts is all that holds them on? Or does this not work how I think it does?

It might be easier to remove bolts #3 and #4, and let the whole blase assembly down with a floor jack. Get it out from under the mower and work on the cutting edges with a grinder.

Block that mower up securely before getting underneath it to try and remove the blade or sharpen it in place. Had a neighbor who was found dead under one when the tractor hydraulics failed and it settled on his chest while working on it. His wife found him several hours later.............

I may regret trying to take them off, but I will give it a whirl. And yeah I checked the manual and I finally found the part with the bushings and it does look like just #1 and #6. Apparently the nuts have cotter keys in them, too!

Think I'd being buying a 4" grinder be a lot easier than removing the blades and a 4" grinder is handy to have around.

It's difficult to be sure from the picture, but yes, I think 1 and 6 are the individual blade mount/pivot bolts.
