Stuck mower blade bolt - update

Recommended Posts

Rob-B
Victory is mine. Thanks for the suggestions. I ground off the head of the bolt, removed the blade and washers, and was then able to spray some WD-40 directly into the bolt threads. Ten minutes later, with the assistance of a pair of vice-grips, the bolt was out. I replaced the bolts with grade 8 bolts, in hopes that the heads will be less resistant to rounding over during the mowing process (the cause of the problem to begin with). Is this a good idea or not?

I'd think it would be wise to use a bit of anti-seize on the threads as well to keep them from rusting in place. Jeremy[A href='http://www.wheatfarm.com']http://www.wheatfarm.com[/a]
