By the way, Repair-man, I want to thank you for your help with this. You're really a wealth of knowledge, down to exacting details and well written which makes your instruction easy to understand.
Wish I could've fixed this no good, lousy, SOB but when bolts start shearing off, I'm thinking that's a sign to buy another.
Leverage is always nice, but sometimes you have to really put the Habeas Grabbus on things to break them loose. It's also smart to wait till all the new parts are in front of you so in case you break the old ones getting them off, it won't make you as unhappy. In the meantime, satisfy your tinkering urges with a glance at the Amana washer manual in the head of the Maytag forum. You will eventually have to place a block of wood under that old bell and pound like heck upwards with a mallet to release the old drive bell...they are really pressed on the saft to begin with. Plan on pounding the new one on as well, since it must be all the way down on the agit shaft for the bolt to go on.
