Default 1929 Model A Fordor gas tank removal issue

I'm in the process of removing a leaky gas tank from a 1929 Model A Fordor. I've removed all the necessary pieces required to drop the tank through the cab (steering column, bolts, etc.). Can't get the gas spout to release from the cowl though. I know it's supposed to drop through a hole in the top of the cowling. I know some have been painted on and take some effort to break loose.

Mine seems to have a lock ring of sorts larger than what I imagine the cowl hole to be, however. On the inside of the tank inlet there appears to be a lock ring of sorts that would require some kind of key to release.

This is my first Model A, so this may be what they all look like. I don't want to damage anything out of ignorance. Not sure what I'm looking at here so would appreciate any advice you guys can offer. Thanks.
