They used some kind of thread lock compound on that ring that you pictured. I wrapped some tape around it and used a good pair of adjustable pliers to crack it loose. I used a pair of the Irwin slip joint pliers(button press to adjust) that have a diamond shape relief in the jaws when closed. They don't let go or slip on you. You don't want to clamp so hard that you deform the ring but tight enough not to slip...

I got the part off!
Robert, your suggestion worked perfectly. Also, you are correct: there was some blue threadlock. Before unscrewing with adjustable pliers, I squirted a tiny bit of WD40 into the area as well.
