Is there a 6 mm bolt in the center of the adapter ? if so loosen by counterclockwise by 5 turns then hit the hex with a hammer to remove. I hope this help.

Loosen the center bolt and tap it down with a mallet then give it a try. If it's still stuck you might want to put the stem back on to get some leverage
