Ariens A22A46 Briggs & Stratton engine - replace transaxle control cam

I need to replace the transaxle control cam on my Briggs & Stratton engine.  I'm pretty handy with replacing belts and installing appliances, but I've never done anything like this before.  Any tips/suggestions are most welcome.  Stupid question - this is a part of the engine... right?

    No it is not part of the engine; it is on the top of the General Transmissions RS800P transaxle. To get to it you must remove the rear transaxle and and the driven pulley which requires a special tool. Once removed then you can access the variation control cam.
     
    Download the service manual for the RS800P from here.

    Any idea if I can do this just by removing the battery?  I'm wondering if there will be enough work room through that hole...

    Not a one. I haven't had to work a RS800P yet except to put in axle seals but I think it would be a lot easier with it out.
