    The crankshaft needs to be wedged through the spark plug hole to prevent it from spinning while the screw is loosened.

Using a small but long screwdriver, remove the screw attaching the clutch assembly to the shaft. The screw can be found by looking down hollow shaft of clutch assembly.

My coleman powermate5500 mod 0525500.01 leaks oil between motor and gen. how to fix

The crank shaft seal is bad on the motor. You will need to seperate the motor from the generator to replace the seal. Depending on the seal design, you will have to open the crankcase on the output shaft side to remove the seal.

Auger clutch lever disengages even though drive clutch lever is squeezed

On mine (Honda HS55) it turned out to be gummy old grease on the shaft and the lever that are supposed to lock the auger lever down. The spring couldn't overpower the sticky old grease. If nudged or given enough time, it would slowly turn and lock, but not instantaneously, as it should.
10 mm wrench to remove the nut (bottom left) and bolt (under handle) holding on the metal cover.
Once cover was off I could see the locking lever, spring, and the shaft that had the gummy grease on it.
The third photo shows the locking lever as it should be engaged. I had to push it to engage it, due to the spring not being strong enough for the gummy grease on the shaft.
There are flat sides on the shaft, behind the threads for the nut that has already been removed. Use a wrench on those to turn the shaft out. Disassemble. Clean. Oil. Reassemble. Works great now.
Another possibility is that your locking lever or spring are broken.

Removing engine from generator

you cannot just pry it off...this model has a tapered shaft...

first remove the plastic cover underneath...then disconnect the wires and set the cover aside..loosen the center bolt that clamps the rotor to the crankshaft (loosen but dont remove...just thread it out approximately 3/16-1/4 inch) and use an automotive alternator/power steering pressed on pulley removal/installer tool to put pressure on the bolt and pop the taper loose..the ridge on the rotor is the right size for this type of puller may need to put the puller really tight and tap the end of it to break''l hear a "pop" when the taper lets go and then its simply a matter of removing the tool and unthreading the bolt ....set the rotor aside and then there is just three bolts to remove the engine.
