Our task is two fold: First to disconnect all the parts that hold the engine to the frame along with any other parts / accessories that must be removed to get the engine out.
Second, we will loosen all the external fasteners (screws, nuts, bolts) on the engine while it is still held in the frame. It is easier to loosen these fasteners now while the engine is stable in the frame rather than rolling around on the work bench.
Speaking of parts to rebuild, our carburetors are due for an overhaul as well after we discovered the crank case was full of gasoline from a leaky needle seat.
Next Time: Pulling out the engine Pt. 2.
