Has anyone ever pulled a engine 14 hp out of a bolens 1402 with a rear driveshaft. I sure could use some advice on the procedure. Are the motor bolted from the top or bottom. Is it easier to pull the driveshaft with engine or try to diconnect it from motor. Attachment of what it looks like.  The model of the engine is a briggs 14 hp  the model # is 400437    type is 012201.  Any help would be great

Are you Talking about the 2 bolts you see in the picture?  And also how do you get to the 2 rear engine bolts ? Are they on the topside of the engine base....  Thanks

First remove the hood. Next unhook the wiring harness and the choke, throttle and fuel line and remove them through the firewall and hang out of the way. Next unhook the spring on the pto  Idler pulley and remove the belts. If I remember correct you can not get the motor unbolted from the cradle as there is not enough room so find the 4 bolts that mount the cradle to the tractor and remove them they are located at each corner and have the rubber mounts. As for the drive shaft I beleave that one has the two piece driveshaft and will slide right off as it is lifted out if not the two bolts will need to be removed from it.

Got everything apart except the driveshaft.   Think the stub is just stuck to engine

well a little wd-40 a bid hammer and a wedged chisel poped it off.   Engine is now on my work bench untill tomorrow . Then pull the fly wheel and check the coil and the stator or hopefully just find a wire shorted out
