Engine/clutch removal 295, 350
 
First time I've ever tried this. Wanted to add some pics I looked for before I started this. I'm confident I'll miss some details.

This is what I started with (350) covered in dried oil (1/2" in some places).

This is the motor replacing it, (motors and more 325, (bored out 295)

First I removed the battery, airbox, carb, wires, gas line, rubber drain line to the case, coil, starter bolt, belts, exhaust manifold, and linkage rods.

Coil

I backed out the 4 bolts holding the skid plate on with a 5/8" wrench
and broke the 4 bolts going into the side of the case loose.

Then I placed a jack under the engine and brought it up to support the base.

Removed the 4 bolts holding the engine in the carriage and lifted the engine out.

Once the engine was out I removed the bolt holding the clutch to the tapered shaft and using Diver's advice; cut a 4" piece of 5/8" bar and purchased a 3/4" fine thread x 2" bolt. I know its not an impact socket, I used what I have.

I put the bar in the clutch hole, followed by the 3/4" bolt and drove it in with a impact gun. The gun was only set on 75psi and popped it right off.

Spent the rest of the evening scraping oil and prepping the new engine.

I will add a much easier way to get ANY sliding clutch off and have done it for years with sleds. Water simple h2o and a bolt with teflon tape. remove the clutch bolt and get a cup of water pour it in the hole till full tip a smite out get the bolt cover end in teflon tape and send it in with an impact or breaker bar. Simple hydrolics can't compress a liquid it will come off and no steel in there so no worries about mucking up the shaft.

Tried a 3/4" bolt but it would not go in the hole (missing by a frog hair). Same clutch as above. What am I missing?

We got it. Once we cleaned out the threads the bolt started and popped off the clutch.

The hydro trick works! Did this yesterday. Should have blown out the dirt behind it cause it made mud.
