How to remove Masthead on T26?

Hi,

Yesterday after working on my friends boat we took a look at the masthead. It needs to be removed so he can have it welded to accept a spinnaker block.

There is one long bolt that goes through the mast and the mast head (not the axel for the pulley), we tried to remove this by turning it and pounding on it with a hammer, this didnt work and it seems like it might be stuck on a compression post or something.

I cant take the entire mast to the welder, I just want to take the piece.

Any ideas on how to get it out? Boat is a 1980 Tanzer 26 and we launch in 2 weeks
