Troy bilt trimmer clutch removal

How do you prevent the engine from rotating to remove the threaded clutch? This is a Troy Bilt 4 cycle gas trimmer model TB475SS.

Thanks.

Insert some starter rope into the spark plug hole of the engine, this will jam the piston but not damage anything. I learned this from another member here, have a good one!
