 Woods 306 - Need HElp

I've got a Woods 306 3-point PTO finishing mower. I bought it used and wasn'table to run it for 1.5 years due to tractor PTO being broken. My problem is one of the blades is not tight and so it spins independantly of it's shaft. Hence no cutting action. I've tried to get the blade bolt out, but struggle with holding the pulley so I can get the bolt undone. I did manage to hold the pully using improvised pins and a steel bar, but I was still unable to get the large bolt to budge even with holding on to the deck and using my leg against the wrench. Any ideas? I have no idea if the bolt was cross-threaded with an impact wrench or how it was assembled. I'm assuming it's right-hand thread. Any help would be appreciated.

I'd try heating the part that the bold threads into. Maybe wet the thread joint with penetrating oil to be sucked in as it cools. May take a few attempts. I'd also consider hitting it with a hammer while hot to help break loose the rust or corrosion. If the bolt head is good, try an impact wrench.

Good luck!
Jack

Thanks Jack. I called a dealership and they told me it was left-hand thread. A different dealership guy told me how to remove the pulley. I removed the whole unit from the deck and locked the shaft in a vice with two bolts through the key'ed pulley holder. A breaker bar and a thrown-out shoulder later had the bolt broke loose. It's all fixed and runs great.

Now I'm off to sell it once the new 4310 shows up.
