    intake grate bolts

    So i know that the intake grate bolts are an accident waiting to happen and i'd like to get that giant aluminum block that goes under the intermediate shaft so i can run M8 bolts. However what's involved in pulling the intermediate shaft? Does the motor come out?

    Unbolt the motor mounts, slide the engine forward a tad, then you can take out the mid shaft.

    if that's the case, i'm assuming it's not very long? Is it only the 4 motor mounts on the sides? The ones under the motor just rest on the hull right?

    Hold this thought!!!!!!! Installing the bracket goes on the other side of the mid wall no need to move the motor! Pull your drive shaft! Buy your block from WFO and also replace the oem hose. He sells that also. Lee

    I agree with Lee. Not a bad job @ all.

    so it sits right behind the wall? I thought it sat under the PTO? So just pull the pump and driveshaft and i'm good?
