As you're aware, the clutch/flywheel is in what might be called a DRY BAY... any engine or transmission oil in the area is due to LEAKAGE. Most sticky clutches are due to leakage/contamination.
Splitting the tractor is not a big deal... several members have their own favorite way to do this. But this is a good time to evaluate the flywheel starter gear and replace the transmission forward seal.
If the contamination is from the Engine Oil, it won't get better by itself...and Bandaid fixes aren't much use.
Fear not, if you can run wrenches and sockets, you'll get all the help you need here.
