I'm assuming that you have removed the large castleated nut.

One or both of the collars is rusted on Ernie. You could try using a bit of heat (Oxy/Acetylene) on the exposed ends but not near the spring. From memory only the ends of the collars are in contact with the shaft, about the first 1-1/4 inches or so. The rest of the bore is a larger diameter. The collars are supposed to be a sliding fit. With the nut removed the hook should just pull out.
