how do i get the flywheel off asweel as the clutch basket then once i get those off can i take the left side of the case apart to put the new rod in or do i need to pull anything apart on the right side

It would be false economy not to pull it all the way down. The sludge sits between the right and left con rods just to begin with. Have fun!

As soon as you start pulling on that splined clutch hub with a typical jaw type puller, it's going to shatter into amazingly shapr hardened steel bits. Don't ask how I know this.

Someone on here can probably loan you a Triumph clutch hub puller.

You NEED to split the cases, clean the sludge trap, and you DON'T have to remove the flywheel from the crank to swap a rod.
