You can't get there from here... at least not yet.

Unfortunately you need to take the engine out and remove it from the oil pan. I know it looks like you can un-do the driving plate and pull it back, but it interferes with the oil pan so that the clutch ring remains trapped.

Sorry for the confusion, I was talking about the Brass clutch ring(Fork) that connects to the High-Low/Clutch lever shaft. I hope that cleared that up. Thanks Mario.

You could slide the engine forward enough to remove the fourth main at the back of the engine and get access to the clutch. Ross Lilleker replaced a clutch on the Texas T Party this way a few years back.

Mario, you will need to drive the rivets out that hold the fork to the shaft, then drive the shaft out and remove the fork,just reverse the procedure to replace,even with the hogshead off it is not easy to get the rivets out.
