I have a cub lo boy 154 motor that we are rebuilding and i noticed that you need to take the manifold off to have enough room to remove the valves. does anyone have any tips on how to get off the 2 bolts toward the center of the manifold? i cant seem to get a socket or wrench on them and im running out of ideas on how to remove them.

When I take them off at work I have to take the carb off and get at them from the bottom. Depending on how bad there stuck I use a short box wrench or most of the time I can get in there with an open end offset wrench and they come right out. I think the original nuts were brass so they wouldn't rust and from the picture it looks like they might be original. Hope this helps. Stewart

If you remove the carb you will be able to have just enough room to get the valves out without pulling the manifold out. It will be tight working around everything but it can be done.

Make sure when you reinstall the studs that connect to the water jacket you use a PTFE thread sealant otherwise you'll saturate the manifold gasket with coolant and probably created other problems.
Hope this helps.
