Older Sugino Crank removal

I am converting a circa 82 schwinn traveler into a single speed and ran into a problem when I tried to remove the crank to take of the large chainring. I removed the dustcap and loosened what turned out to be a 14mm nut threaded on what I am guessing is a threaded extension coming out of the square taper bottom bracket end. Once I removed the nut, the bolt protruded too far for me to thread my crank extractor on. I saw on Sheldon's side that this type of arrangement exist, but he made no special mention of anything unusual about the crank removal. Is there a different type of extractor that is designed for this bottom bracket axle?
