Motor Mount Bolts

Any of you re-power gurus know how the mounting bolts are fastened to the chassis .
The model I'm repowering is a late '60's 6 HP Sno-Thro ( the one that accepts all the front attachments ) .

They are pressed on. A few hits with a hammer and they come right out

fwiw.....i cut the studs off about 1/4 " above the chassis and welded extensions on. it seemed like the easiest option for me as there isnt much room to get anything like hands or tools up past the transmission parts.

I have cut the studs off, and then drilled through and tapped the hole to accept 5/16 bolts. This is especially helpful on the 73-4 10000 series forward bolts.

They are spot welded. I believe they have 3 spot welds each. I have knocked them out with a sledge hammer.

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.

I don't understand why but I've had the best luck cutting them with angle grinder so there's about 1/4" then used a framing hammer to whack them out, maybe it's the heat?

If you do the drill and tap method, I suggest adding nuts on the rearward bolts inside the chassis; they are easy to put on, and use Red Threadlocker on all the newly tapped threads as well. GL!

I would add stainless aircraft type lock-nuts on all four .
