Hello
Not sure what is exactly called however on my motor there are two points that the tiller connect to the motor itself.  At the upper connection point both mounting bolts have broken, it is also the 2 bolts that hold the plate that keeps the motor from turning to far.  What I need to know is how does that upper mount connect into the shaft.  There are 2 phillips head screw heads showing. Do they need to be removed and then the whole thing will come apart?  I hate removing them if the dont need to be removed because i am afraid of stripping the heads out. They are however the only connectors I can see.  Also any tips for removing the upper shift linkage or is the easiest way to remove the carb for easier access.
Thank you
