Remove the Blade Carrier with blades attached by undoing the bolt in its center, which holds it in place (use the 24mm(1 inch) socket). If the blade carrier spins whilst loosening the bolt, jam it in place with a piece of wood or something similar to make it possible to remove the bolt.
Remove the four bolts on the underside of the mower which hold the engine in place (now visible after removing the backplate). Be aware that the engine will fall out when all bolts are removed – be ready to hold it in place or else it will fall (and it’s heavy!). Make sure you don’t lose any of the bolts or plates you have undone.
The final step is to disconnect the carburettor. Unplug all the hosing connecting the carburettor to the engine, pull out the ignition cables going into the carburettor. Twist the carburettor then pull it away from the engine. The engine should now be free.
