Snapper rear engine. Engine removeal

I'm just an old guy with a tool box and too much time on his hands. No claims of being a mechanic.

My question. Can you remove the motor on a late 70's Snapper rear engine rider without removing the spinning plate first? My reason for asking. I've had some guy's tell me the plate would not pass thru the engine cut out space. And one guy say's it will. If it will. Then I think I can handle an engine change out. But if the spinning plate must be removed or loosened in order for the engine to be removed.
(Almost no room to work. Seized lock nuts. You see where I'm going.) Then it's more than these old shaky hands can handle.

I'm sure there are still a few old Snapper guy's out there that have done this a time or two.

Hope my questions make sense. I'm new to this Forum thing.

Yes, it will come off without taking the plate off. Done it more times than I can remember.
