McCullough 3227 weed eater - no spark

My McCullough weed eater is not producing a spark at the plug. Checked the plug in another weed eater and plug is good. By-passed the kill switch by disconnecting and connected a wire b/w both posts. Still no spark. Assuming the problem is related to the flywheel/magneto I am now stuck trying to remove the clutch in order to get to the flywheel/magneto. I see no way to remove the clutch drum. Any suggestions on how to access the flywheel/magneto would be appreciated.

First try for spark by just unhooking the kill switch, I think when you put the jumper wire on you gave it permanent ground. To remove the clutch hub I think there is a T20 torx screw in the center that holds it on. If you decide to remove the clutch, remove the spark plug and load the cylinder with starter rope to lock the engine from turning. Have a good one. Geo
