    There might be something here that could help
    Just check it out thanks, looks like some don't even remove the SC and IC which is a plus. Gotta find a service manual now.

    So I been on a mission with this, turns out after months of waiting the OEM housing is on backorder; then I was told it will be until next year when it would be available, so I decided to order the WSM part that is plug and play with everything already pressed in and it arrived at my hands already.

    I was able to loosen the engine and move it forward without removing the exhaust or intake manifolds. While doing that I noticed none of the engine mounts had any shims on it =( it makes me wonder now that most likely when Riva put the new engine in about 30 hours ago they just dropped it in and never aligned it, even though they also replace my motor mounts at that time)

    Anyways the next task was getting the housing off, and man this thing will not move. First I tried removing the three screws that hold it and all of them broke the head with minimal force, the housing itself doesn't have any threading and is smooth as the screws just passes through to the nut on the mid wall. It hit the housing to break it loose, sprayed WD40 on the screws, and nothing; spoke to a couple of mechanics that told me heat it up and then bang on it, nothing. Finally I heated up some more and put some pry bars behind it and the thing started moving.

    The problem now is that the nuts broke out of the mid wall fiberglass, and left a big hole on it. The mid wall surface also doesn't feel too even towards the bottom where the hosing goes.

    I tried searching and it doesn't seem that the mid wall is something that is sold separate which sucks, so most likely have to fix this one.

    What would you guys recommend to set/glue the nuts that came out, inside their holes on the mid wall? I am also thinking of adding an aluminum plate at front to even out the surface of the wall to reenforce as well as longer bolts with washers and nuts on the back of the wall.

    Any other possible solutions out there you might know about? Please let me know.

    Thanks
    Jose

    Why were the bolt ‘nuts‘ (bolt heads?) not cut/ground away before prying the housing away from the mid-wall?

    the bolt heads? Didn’t have to cut them out all three broke right away when I tried losing them out with minimal force.

    That’s what I would try, as long as the plate thickness doesn’t mess with any clearance issues. Clean up the mid wall as best you can use the bearing housing as a template and use 5200 to seal that plate to the wall and thru bolt it together with another plate in the rear or large thick fender washers also sealed with 5200
    Good luck with your repair

    Any plate is going to space the motor forward so your mounts will (at best) need to be slotted.

    These are what pulled through the mid-wall, correct? Were the mid-wall holes already chewed up?

    Yes that what pulled through the wall. The top one was already chewing the wall and coming out but not with enough room to fit a grinder, and one of the bottom ones. Once I was able to fit a pry bar and started pulling they burst out.
