Tilt Column: Lock plate removal

I have a 91 GMC 5.7L: That has tilt steering and its lose I have removed the steering wheel now I am looking at a metal plate or sprocket. My question is how do you remove this. Does this need a gear puller to remove it.

Re: Need help w/ Tilt Collum

The “Lock Ring” holds it on. It has a spring behind it. Notice the tool being used to compress the spring so the lock ring can be removed.

Looks like on this site he did the quick fix and did not take it apart far enough to tighten all four fasteners.
