    Do a search.
    There are several threads mentioning coupler removal.

    Regular thread direction for removal, I think.

    It's a Right hand thread. Insert a length on rope thru the rearward spark plug hole,When you turn the crank ,it will pinch the rope betweenthe head and piston holding the crank from turning,then use a pipe wrench or big cresent wrenh and remove it.
