    You mean the clutch cover? It really cant be done IIRC, press on fitting there. But if it will come off then it is gonna unscrew counter clockwise. Get a strap wrench and stuff string or something into the cylinder to stop piston which will hold the crank from moving.

    It should have a hole to put a nail or whatever to hold it and turn the head backwards it should come off.

    The head has to come off backwards try holding the spindle in a vice and turn the head with your hands they are not really hard to turn.
