Re: clutch rod bearing
If you're talking about the ball bearing that goes in before the bucking bar, a magnet small enough to fit into the bore of the drive sprocket will work. Sometimes that bearing is stuck in grease and needs a little help. It should come out easily.
If a magnet doesn't drag it out you might try spraying some degreaser into the hole first to loosen things up.
