clutch cover removal

Has anyone come up with a convenient way to removed the bottom 8 mm bolts on the bottom part of the clutch cover with the factory bash plates installed?

can you reach the nuts without removing the bash plate?

Universal joint ratchet extension up from the bottom with a nut driver works like a champ.

Just go easy putting them back in.

can you start them with your fingers when putting them back. The reason for all these somewhat obvious questions is I have two steel knees and bending them or getting around can be a bit difficult at times. I have about a 6 or 8 inch 8 mm ratchet wrench.

They will start on their own . Just a little pressure inward and they will start .

Thanks a lot to all of you. I am putting a Maverick belt on since that what this forum seemed to like. Will that short a wrench work on those bottom nuts?

Great! That is exactly what I have. What year is your Commander? How much service are you getting out of your belts? I probably should play the lottery. I have over 2,000 miles on this belt. But, at 72, I am not ripping it like you guys do. I am in Montana and use an Alpine snow blade for a few months to get to a county road and I use it on 12 acer pastures to spray. The back country stuff I do is just for fishing and running around in the back trails of a mountain range...plus a bit of elk hunting.
