I had a Stihl 660 in here that I could NOT get the clutch off of, in fact when trying to do so I slipped and buried the top tooth of the inner dog about an inch into my left forearm. Well after a trip to the doc for 12 stitches I was back at the shop and the 660 was on my bench with my blood on its' face laughing at me.

So I thought about it for a while and decided to try a little reverse psychology on the smart azz bazturd. I put my rope back in the jug so it was blocked from turning anticlockwise, then I used a rattle wrench and gave it about three or four burps to tighten it up, then re blocked the piston, and one burp and the clutch was off. Very old trick I learned from a tractor mechanic when I was a kid
