I was wondering if I could get help on a specific issue I have on my Nikon MC II. 

 

My goal is to just get the ring (not the barrel) off to match the binoviewer seating location with my other MCII eyepiece.

 

I removed the bottom ring that is being held in place with a rubber seal (and possibly held in place with light glue, reading the forums) on my other MCII but forgot how I managed to do it.

 

I was able to remove the tiny set screw (bottom arrow) and the slightly bigger screw (top arrow) but neither of the two unscrew the bottom ring, even with significant force. See attached picture.

 

Thanks in advance!
