Try Richard or CPC - P/N 9379-8010.  If not there, try this:

So much for the "proper" tool route - you can also try a couple of work-arounds:

1. Use an air impact.  You may not need to hold the clutch hub at all.

2. Put the transmission in gear, preferably one of the higher gears.  Hold the transmission output by putting vice grips or a pipe wrench on the sprocket.  Be careful to not damage the sprocket teeth. 

Also, do not try holding the clutch hub by using the spring guide pins on the pressure plate.  That's a good way to end up needing a new pressure plate (although I've gotten away with it at least once).

Wow, you rock! Thank you! I am making a trip to Harbor Freight any way and the Adjustable Pin Wrench looks like it will do the trick!

I'm getting ready to do this also, but I don't think the Harbor Freight wrench opens up wide enough.  I found the attached photo on the internet, think I'll give it a try!
