Think you were given some bad info Scott.  Unit can be tilted back slightly and complete trans dropped if necessary.  Belt and other components accessible just by tilting back.  Not as easy as say to replace a belt on an old Maytag dependable care, but about as far as needed to change a thrust bearing on a MAV style.  I personally liked the ease of teardown.
