Poulan Clutch Assembly Removal

I have a Poulan 2450 18" Chainsaw that is not getting oil to the bar. I have blown out the lines and cleaned the bar very well and still cannot get any oil to the bar. There is a little oil coming out when its running onto the side of the bar but not much. There is no adjustment for the oiler on this so I am believing it is the pump. I cannot figure out how to get the Clutch assembly off from above the Oiler Pump without messing something up. Can someone help me get this assembly off? Thanks!

If you just drive the clutch in reverse of the engine rotation it will spin off.

If you can't get it to hold still to do that, stuff a nylon rope down the spark plug hole and run the piston up against it, then turn it off with a wrench or drive it off with a soft metal drift.
