Default 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.

Heres a close up of the wires


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.
