    Anyone ever have to get to the motor and transmission on a vee pro 6000 or 8000? I came across some bolts on the cover that at first appeared to be 'allen keyed'. After cleaning them out, they now look to be like rivets. I was wondering if this was correct and to get inside I would have to drill out those rivets? I backed into a parking sign and bent the spinner shaft. Wow does this thing bounce all over so it needs to be straightened ASAP. Thank you for your help if you respond to my questions.

    i did that last year ended up having to buy a trans, drill the rivets out start soaking the set screw on the spinner now and heat it up before you try to move it or it will snap off then you will have to drill it out
