Hi guys,

Here is where I am at:

The inner gray ring is supposed to be a retainer ring sitting inside the inner housing (see blow-up below)

A helpful member from kyphoto forums provided the microfiche for this nFD 85 f/1.8

26-7177-000 holds 22-1923-000 in CA2-1240-000

That inner gray ring is supposed to be 26-7177-000, which has opposing notches for a spanner and holds the middle assembly (22-1923-000) in the inner housing (CA2-12-40-000). This inner housing actually moves in and out with the focus ring, meaning that it sits inside the top most part of the picture (CF2-0280-000), which itself sits inside the focus ring (second part from top; CF2-0281-000).

So, what are some tricks to removing a retaining ring with no notches nor screws???
