Hammering a flat head screw driver between the clutch and the aluminum crankcase will often result in a distorted case. I'd advise that whatever is done to remember that the clutch is not the most expensive item. Engines generally are harder to come by.

If you took the drum off, then the screws you are looking for will be on the engine side of the clutch. If there are no screws then there should be holes where at least one screw should go. When you are absolutely sure the screw or screws are out, get you some pb blaster penetrating oil, because wd40 sucks, I know, I have used both.

It must have been mounted outboard. They can be horrible! I just had a Kart engine like that and ended up cutting the clutch hub from the crank. Even then I had to peel it off with a hammer and chisel. I should have taken a photo of the aftermath. If people took 5 minutes with a file and emery cloth prior to installation we wouldn't have these problems.
