Peggy ,..sorry I was missing for awhile.
I’m with Tom in using the PB blaster…great stuff.
Looking at the photos, Í think that I might be seeing a small “cup” to the left of the area where the stem enters the movement. I may be the type of spring release where all you have to do is insert say a toothpick or other small device and gently push down while giving some tension on the stem. If that isn’t it, the screw to the right of the photo may be the one.
Try looking into the plates from the edge, with some magnification, to see if you can see what is engaging it as well. You may or may not have luck doing that, but I thought I would mention it.
