Removing clutch from Ryobi

I have a Ryobi 790r that needs a new pull starter but I can't figure out how to get the clutch off of the shaft. I got the outer cone off but the inner part has me stumped.

If I read and understand right.....you've already got the clutch drum off-right?

Ok the clutch itself is screwed on to the crankshaft,it unscrews CCW.
Take the spark plug out and fill the cylinder with plastic hose to stop the piston from moving then with a punch and hammer.....knock the clutch in the direction of the arrow stamped in to the clutch.When unscrewed you can get the starter part off.
IF YOU NEED A PART BREAK DOWN MANUAL YOU'LL BE ABLE TO GET ONE AT THIS SITE OF MINE:

I believe that this trimmer is a straight shaft trimmer and with such the clutch will be removed in a clockwise manner. In other words the threads will be left-hand.
