It should come right off. If you unscrew the screw on the side, the crane comes forward & the cylinder should come off. Try urning it a 1/2 turn or so. I always take mine apart to clean it.

One caveat. Use the right size and type of screwdriver to to remove the screw. Otherwise it is to easy to bung up the screw to the point of needing replacement entirely. Or the screw driver might not have enough bearing service for the tool to effectively apply enough force to cause the screw to move. Then the screw will have to be drilled out and replaced. When putting the screw back in, be sure to tighten the screw up with out over exertion on the screwdriver. This would strip the threads on the screw.

You must unscrew the ejector rod and the cylinder will come off the crane. Be careful not to lose the spring and parts. It should be a left hand thread, so that might be what's goofing you up.

Pulling the ejector rod out by unscrewing it should allow the crane to come out of the cylinder completely.
