How to remove the gear box on my king kutter

I am trying to tighten the bolts that hold the gear box to the top of the brush hog. I am trying to remove the round head plate to get access to the gear box bolts. I have removed the cotter pin and 1 1/2 in nut from underneath. The plate will still not come down. Any thoughts???

does the battery tray remove easily to allow acces to the pinion?What if you replace the allen cap screw with a hex cap. Mine is a hex and it's fairly easy to remove and install with a 10mm wrench. Of course I'm talking about a different model here? Just a thought.,

SOURCE: Changing Smeg SA280X/1 fan motor, shaft nut stuck?

Most fan blades are held on by a single nut, which is usualy a left hand thread, so to unscrew it you turn it clockwise as though you are tightening it up.and to tighten it,anticlockwise..
If the spindle turns, then you will have to hold it with a pair of grips or similar.
Plz rate my solution.

How do you change blades on 5ft bush hog?

lift The brush hog up and place on blocks or other foundation that wont fall over. disconnect the power take off shaft from the tractor. Now look for two round openings in the middle of the deck one on ether side of the gear box (the thing on the brush hog that the pto shaft from the tractor hooks up to to make it spin there might be a slip clutch on the shaft but go to the box in the middle) Now turn the shaft till you see the blade nuts in the hole These could be castle nuts with a small carter pin locking them so they don't unscrew. Remove the pin and with a large socket set unscrew it from the bolt then knock the press fit bolt down and the blade will come off, do the same to the other blade if you need them both off. To put them back on use something under the blade and bolt to hold it up so you can start the nut then reverse the order and put everything back on. The blade bolt might be stubborn to get out just take something that fits through the access hole like a wood doll or long punch and drive the bolt down till it comes out as it is press fit and is jammed up to keep the bolt from turning, when putting it back on you will need to make it tight so the bolt can repress back in. Be Careful when reaching under to set the blade and bolt back in. There is not much you can mess up it is just a big nut and bolt Just make sure you put the blade on the way it came off if you do one blade or one at a time you can look at the other to see which way it goes.

How do you remove a pulley from a spindle unit to replace the bolts holding it to the deck.

First remove the nut on top of the pulley using a 1 1/16 in. wrench or socket. Then you will need to pry the pulley of the shaft using two pry bars. A bit of force may be required. It will kind of pop off when it does finally break loose. Be careful not to lose the half moon key that will still be in the slot on the shaft.
