Clutch Removal and other questions

Hi,

I'm trying to remove the clutch and I took off the cover and the fist centre nut and was expecting to find a castellated nut with a locktab but instead I find what looks like a normal nut. A bit of reading says that some clutches have a slightly oval shaped nut fitted which acts as the locking nut. It doesn't look even remotely oval to me but in any case, I can't shift it. Any tips on how to get this pig undone?

Also, on the other side of the engine is the cover for the points. How do I get this centre nut and plate off? My manual says I need a special tool. If so, where's the best place to get it from and what's it called please?

Thanks and sorry for the newbie questions. I'll post some pictures of my cylinder and head in a moment and you can all have a laugh.

Rod
