Main furling "clutch"

Paul Osterberg
 

Hello!
I have problem getting the Outer shaft out of the main furler gearbox, the inner is rock solid as well, in worst case I have to have a new shaft made, but at least I need to get the aluminium "clutch" nob off se picture. The gear wheel is locked with a spring washer that is not accessible, so I cant get the gear off. The clutch nob is not passing the hole in the lid, Any idea?
