I remember mine also being very difficult to remove. Once I got it off, I chased the threads on the worm and ring and eventually got them to fit smoothly. I wonder if distortion of the threads from drilling the original pin hole is the cause of the binding.

Are you certain the pin is not engaging the worm as well as the lock
