I need to get the blade of the lawn mower sharpened.Any tips on how to disconnect the blade fropm the lawn mower?
ANSWER : There is a jig that you can buy that makes this job SO much eaiser. It is a universal jig that clamps onto the deck and keeps the blade from spinning so you can use a ratchet to remove the nut holding the blade on. One name brand is called a “Blade Hog”. You should be able to find one of these at one of the bog box hardware stores.

Hope this helps,

What do I need to do to remove the blade adapter assembly for replacement?
ANSWER : You can remove it with a flywheel puller. I would use the one that has the flat hooks at the bottom of the puller. I would also use the blade bolt to push against with the flywheel puller. If you hook the flywheel puller onto the crankshaft there is a possibility that you could damage the threads for the blade bolt.

I hope this helps you out.
