Your clutch tool needs a long bolt threaded through the flat bar to engage the dimple in the bearing spacer. It doesn't take much force to begin to compress the clutch springs: you need the tool to hold the flat plate in place when you remove the 6 nuts and then allow the springs to expand as you undo your tool's center bolt/rod.

Somebody's definitely been in there before as lockwiring the trapdoor bolts is not a factory setup.
