Snowbird 263 Blower housing

Hi Folks. I recently started restoring an old Snowbird 263. Im trying to pull off the blower housing however i see there this is a small metal angle bar at bottom welded to the snowblowers engine deck. It dosnt look like i will be able to pull housing off with that in the way. Im wondering if there is a way to do this? i wouldnt imagine i would have to pull engine off just to remove housing? I want to make sure i can remove before i attempt to beak free the mounting bolts where as they look pretty rusty and i may end up snapping them. Any assistance is greatly appreciated

To remove blower housing of engine you will need to remove the two engine mounting bolts on that end and loosen the rear two. When that is done tilt engine back and block up with a suitable spacer, you can then remove housing with chute angled full left.
