I should both apologize for dissing Kenessex and for dropping threads, but I e-mailed him and he said to get a thicker skin, people here are pretty forgiving. Anyway I scrapped trying to start it knowing that the motor would need freshening up. It is mostly apart and the top end went to my machine shop but how can I get that centrifical oil filter off without the tool? I removed all the case bolt and was going to leave it on the crankshaft, but the case won't split. Has anyone ever encountered this?

Weepster,
Welcome back. It is nice to see that UngaWunga has welcomed you also in his own little way.
You might as well get the tool, because the oil filtration system is non-existent to marginal at best. I actually remove that filter thing occasionally and clean it so that pieces of sludge don't end up back in the engine. If you change your oil often enough though it stays pretty clean.

if you have an old socket to spare you can fabricate your own tool pretty easily.

very kind imslow but I'll buy one, I didn't realize they were so cheap. Seems like a dumb place for an oil filter though, the Clymer says remove right muffler and brake pedal?!! Thiis one appears to have never been changed. If I were to make one (my Honda guy might not have one) it's 23mm ID?

You should only have to remove the pipe and brake if you are removing the whole clutch cover. To clean and remove the oil filter thingy should just be the 3 screws in the small round cover at the front of the clutch cover.
