No longer a newbie, but still clueless.

A few months back, I picked up an Italian floor corker from @mainshipfred. Mechanically, it appears to be in great shape, but it has some age on it and a few cosmetic dings. My plan was to disassemble it, clean it up, give the painted parts a fresh coat of paint and put it back together. I'm sort of stuck. There's a rod attached to the handle that goes down through the upright tube and is attached with a couple nuts and a washer. There's some sort of spring action on this and I can't get the nuts to turn. Is there a trick I'm missing here?
