Craftsman Table Saw 351.218330 Motor Help

New to the forum. I could really use some advice from anyone familiar with the saw listed in the description.

I need to drop the motor. I have removed the nut at the top and the adjustment bolt at bottom. The motor must slide to the right to clear the bolt at the top, but the side panel will not allow this. There is only one panel on the saw that is removable (That I can see). So, I am stuck how to drop this motor without completely dismantling the whole saw. The manuals are zero help and I can't find anything online.

I could really use some help from someone who has been through this.

Thank you.

Typically ....

Usually you remove the cabinet from the table leaving all the components attached to the table. This is a hybrid saw saw so it may be a bit different, BUT if what you are saying is true, then remove the cabinet.

Maybe this diagram will be useful:

This link is provided by Sears for replacing the motor:

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

Thanks for the reply. I found that video when searching, but the design is totally different on my saw. But, I finally figured it out. I thought I would post it here in case anyone else struggles with this.

The solution was simple, just move the angle of the blade toward a 45 degree angle. This rotates the motor away from the side of the housing, and gives you enough room to drop the motor...DUH! I can't believe I worked so long trying to figure this out.
