I am splitting the sm. I have the front of the tractor braced with splitting stands and rear cribbed. Am I correct in thinking the only bolts needing to be removed are the 8 bolts in frame rail and bell housing? I have them removed and have tried to roll the engine forward with no success. Are there any "hidden" bolts that need to be removed? Thank you kindly for your help/advice.

Pete

There are not any "hidden" bolts. Look under the gas tank

Do you still have the rear wheels attatched? Most tractors are split by rolling the rear end away from the engine with a castor wheel assy. solidly attatched to the front of the rear casting just ahead or right at where the belly pump would be. Do you have a cement floor? Post a picture of your setup if you can. Also best to have a helper when you do the actual split and reassembly. Armand

Pete, there are 2 bolts under the gas tank that need to be removed. If you were not looking you would completly miss them, I did the same thing with my M a couple months ago. Be Safe, ~Anthony

Here is a picture of a rear stand that I manufacture for allowing the rear of the tractor to be rolled around. I have one of the orginal stands that all of the IH dealers received when the 300/400 series of tractors came out. I have redesigned this stand, so it fits all of the 5 speed transmission that IH made over many years.

But, I still feel that it is much easier and safer to move the front half of the tractor with a splitting stand that has wheels under it. Just be carefull, you are working with big chunks of cast iron.
