I forget if it will be a T-20 Torx driver or a 5/32" allen driver to be used on the screw in the center of the clutch drum that needs to come out in order to allow the drum to be removed. You'll need to stuff a fair amount of rope (same size as used on the rewind pull start) into the combustion chamber via the spark plug hole in order to act as a piston stop. You'll then need to remove the centrifugal clutch which I believe is threaded onto the OD of the crankshaft and requires either a large waterpump pliers to grab ahold of it or a punch and hammer in order to get this off.
