    Removing exhaust manifold slx pro 785

    First of all, Iím new to the forum so forgive me if I forget something or if this is in the wrong place. Anyways, I have a 1997 pro that was running and driving great and after shutting it down it would not crank, just a click. I think I have narrowed it down to the starter. I tested the battery and it is at 12.7 volts with nothing pulling on it and when I crank it drops to about 11.2. I tried to jump the solenoid and that did not help. Also made sure the engine is free which it is.

    So to the point, Iím trying to get at my starter and cannot figure out how to remove one of the bolts that connects the PTO and center manifolds together. I think it is a 9/16 inch but cannot get a ratchet to it. Also it seems like there may be a nut on the other side that I also canít get to. Hereís a diagram with the part circled Iím talking about Click image for larger version.

    Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. (Maybe something I forgot to test or should check before moving further with the starter?)

    Thanks in advance guys.

    that bolt is 17mm socket use a long extension to get it out

    it should not have a nut on it unless someone put something else in there

    Yeah thatís what I was afraid of. Just confirmed thereís a 9/16 in there with a nut holding it together meaning someone has switched it.... wish me luck.
