Well, victory is mine over the lockring. I put the assembly vertical on my bench and got a good grip with the chain whip on the middle ring and the lockring spanner and she loosened. I am getting better with the chain whip. I cleaned the spacers and greased the threads. Now, I am having a hard time getting the big ring to go down over the threads for the lockring. What's the trick to that? I have tried rocking it back and forth. I am reluctant to tap it with a mallet lest I bend the ring or damage the threads. Also, does it matter which side of the rings go on first? Is there a front and back to the rings? Here are 2 pics.
