I do this fix all the time at work.   Set the saw on its side.    Make sure the brake handle is forward.    Take the clutch cover and put it in place as if you are going to put it on.   Now at the top of the clutch cover push it in firmly and pull the brake handle back.   It does not matter if the bottom of the cover sticks out some.    That should open up the brake band for you.   

If you look at the top of the clutch cover you can see where it engages the handle.

I can do this in about 2 minutes time and so can you.
The last one I did (350), I tried resetting it this way but I couldn't get it to catch the fingers enough to get it reset. I was probably doing something wrong? I bought the saw with the brake all torn up. Otherwise, it looked new.

I did the mistake of taking the clutch cover off my then new 353 with the brake on once in 2003 - and I used a large screwdriver and some force to push that "star" over, and release the brake. It took some beers to figure out how to do it!  ;D
