Stihl FS-36 Trimmer....No Spark

I have a 'no spark' issue. I am assuming it is the coil. I bought this trimmer new in 1992. It has been a work horse for me and I hate to put it out to pasture.

I don't know how to get the round thing (clutch?) with the blue springs off
the engine shaft so I can pull the cover back to expose the coil.

Any help would be appreciated. Below is a picture of what I need to remove.

It's mounted on threads. Stuff a nylon rope into the cylinder through the spark plug hole and either turn it off with a wrench or drift it off with a soft punch, like brass. It turns off counter clock.
