Yup, it needs to be removed.. There's actually a special socket from Kent Moore (J-23193) to take off that nut. I found the socket on ebay for $20 shipped. I've been told that you can grind down a regular socket to make it thinner to get it to fit inside the well but I am a firm believer that the right tool for the job works best.

Miller Detroit  C-4117 U 
TILT STRNG LOCK NUT    The wording is old and not so clear as it's been used a time or ten. Had to buff it a bit to find the tool number on it. I think that the middle word is STRNG as if to abbreviate it. 

Do a Google search - they are on eBay now and then.
I forgot that I even had this tool - it's part of the tool stash I got from my former boss years ago along with Kent-Moore tools. 

Likely you'll find the Miller Detroit version a whole lot easier to find than the Kent Moore version.
