It's been awhile since I removed a EK10 engine. In reviewing the parts catalog in the manuals section, there is an adapter strap on each side of the engine. Each strap has four holes. Two 3/8" bolts (9/16" wrench size) go through the strap and into the holes in the engine block. Two 5/16" bolts (1/2" wrench size) go through the strap and into holes in the transaxle. I really don't think it matters which bolts you remove (either all four of the 3/8" bolts or all four of the 5/16" bolts), as either would release the engine from the tractor.

Frame steer described it pretty well , you will need a deep well socket with extension to remove the rear bolt closest to the coil, that one is a PITA to get at!
The bolts are screwed into the casting so no nuts are underneath
