Anybody pulled one out of a QT16?  I have the service manual but the photos they ref. to are worthless, all dark with no detail.  One shows what looks like the top of the tunnel removed for access to the hydraulic lines.   My tractor has the tunnel cover and steering tower in one piece.  I removed the 6 bolts, 3 each side of the cover and tower but that whole piece is still solid.  Any suggestions short of a cut off wheel and blue wrench ? ?

Just keep removing bolts and parts till it comes out. Works for me!

Unfortunately some times things don't always get back to where they should be...

I have got myself in a ton of trouble and extra work going that route.  But - if worse comes to worse - -?

Guess you come in from the bottom to get the hydraulic lines off as he removed his with the tower and tunnel intact.  Thanks for the tip.  Need to go there more often, just never think of it I guess.
