Subject: [CR]Brampton headset mechanical help, please

I am taking a Brampton headset off a bike to put on another. The locknut and the adjustable cup are notched. After taking the locknut off, I attempted to take the adjustable cup off. I get about three turns, and then it locks or tightens. There appears to be a washer fitted between the inside of the threads on the adjustable cup and the outside threads of the steering column. The washer does not move when I either loosen or tighten the adjustable cup. Nor can I get the adjustable cup low enough onto the steerer column to get something underneath it to remove it.

Anyone encounter something like this and find a solution that he or she would like to share with me?

Thank you.
