Been a while since I messed with a 350,but I think the only thing you have to remove is the drive clutch.....After that,a couple of bolts and it's out....The starter is crammed back in there,but you should be able to get to it......

Yes a puller bolt is required to remove the drive clutch. You must first identify the drive clutch you  have and then get the correct bolt. If you post a pic of the clutch then you can be infomened which one you have and direct you to a place to get puller.

I'm pretty sure the driven has to come off on the 350, which can be as big a pain as getting the stubs out of a Pilot transmission. :(

If the driven is stuck on than could one remove the engine and get at it that way leaving the driven on the trans.

Yup, Livewire says it's easier to just pull the motor.

about 5 years ago i pulled the cheapest comet clutch they sell for a 350 with a puller i made from welding 2 bolts together and grinding the weld smooth.
