How to get Warn Lock-O-Matic Hubs Off???

I am trying to get these Warn Lock-O-Matic hubs of my axle. I got the outsides off, but i am stuck at the piece that is on the axle tip. It ia a thick spacer thing that has three allen head screws through it to hold it to the axle nut. How do I get this part off?

And are Warn Lock-O-Matic hubs any good? they are pretty complicated, but are they tough?

I have never had any problems with them. They have been on my dads 73 cj5 since new. I realy like the fact that if you are out driving around you can just put it in 4wd if you get in a slippery spot and not have to get out to lock the hubs in. The only times they were usually locked in was in the winter so it would have compression braking on all four corners as they revert back to freewheel mode when you are coasting.
