OK this is a dumb question but on this model the DC is threaded into the taper sleeve …correct?

How do you know it’s rust, I ask because we can’t see it, so I’m not sure if it is a rusty heap or if there is a possibility that you think it might be rusted because it’s tight?
Photos are always better Nic, then we can visualize what’s going on..

Have you tried a bit of heat? That is a little, not glowing red (disclaimer) 😆 maybe use a heat gun.
