Default clutch help!

Good Day everyone!
I'm working on my 87 hurricane and I'm trying to replace my clutch and I need some help/advice. I got everything out of the way down to the lock nut that holds everything in place on the pressure plate and whatnot but I cant figure out how to get that nut off of there. I read in my Clymer manual that there is a specific tool that I need in order to hold everything still while I wrench that stuff off and out of there, but I cant find the tool. Does anyone have any advice for me on how to make this easier or where I can find the tool? Or maybe someone would be willing to let me borrow theirs if they have one? Thanks for your advice and help.

It's a stake nut, so it is notched into the keyed shaft. You want to use a small punch and knock as much of the stake out of the key as you can. After that you can loosen it. I shifted into 6th gear and used the rear brake and hit it with an impact gun. Came off easy. Keep in mind you shouldn't reuse the nut, so order a new one. I got mine from ron ayers for a couple bucks.

Take at look at this thread. Just omit the shift kit stuff.
