I have everything disconnected and the bolts out but the motor won't drop from the frame. I have the motor on a milk crate and when I pick up the frame the motor stays in. do I have to pry or something?

There are two engine mount adjusters in the rear motor mount holes of the frame on the brake side that you need to loosen.

Thanks! now what in the heck is a point shaft wrench? Are they referring to the open end of a wrench?

BIG flat head screwdriver. It's been 4 years, but I remember using a chisel to do mine (ground the chisel end flat). Look in the holes on the rear mounts on the brake side.

Manual says you can make one (side facing toward you obviously goes into the hole in the frame):
