Wait until the mower cools off
1. Remove the drive belt cover from the top of the mower
2. Tip the mower up, being careful to not go too far or the oil and fuels may spill out
3. Remove the mower blade - as I recall the bolt is 5/8" (could be 9/16") You will have to hold the blade from turning (if you have impact tools, this will be much easier)
4. Remove the blade
5. Pull the pulley out or off and remove the belt - be careful to not lose the crankshaft "woodruff" key - it's the little piece of half/moon shaped metal that keeps the pulley from spinning on the crankshaft.
6. Reverse the steps to reinstall
You MUST make sure the blade is tight when you reinstall it. Also, the blade usually fits over a couple of pins - make sure they are lined up properly and the blade is installed right-side up.

there is a panel in front of the gear that completes the curve of the blade path that you can remove with a single bolt on the outside of the mower between the wheel and the deck

You have water in in the carborator, I'll bet. I had this same problem. Here's what I did.
I emptied the gas tank, put in a new spark plug, changed the oil and then unscrewed thd big nut on the bottom of the float container (attached to the carborator near the rubber gas injector button) and emptied and cleand the float container. Then i put it all back together, pulled the cord and the same thing happened, but this time i could keep it going by having my daughter constantly pushing the rubber gas injector button. After it had run for a minute with this constant pushing of the button, all the water was gone from everytwhere and it worked.

The clicking noise may be the blade hitting the side of the mower or it was not put on properly. It needs a balance to the aluminum flywheel on top of the engine. The blade adapter and blade provide this balance for the engine to run.

Was it the 'flywheel key' ? Does it yank the rope out of your hand violently when you try to start it?
Take the top shroud off, remove the flywheel nut, washer and screen. Remove the flywheel by threading the nut back onto the crank end to protect the threads and with a brass hammer ( and while lightly prying with a screwdriver from behind the flywheel) and a few good solid taps on the end of the crankshaft the flywheel should free up.
Remove the flywheel and inspect the key. Even .001th off will make the motor run funny or not at all.
