Default Clutch adjustment problem

Hello.
Today I was going to adjust the clutch on my 1991 883.
This is how it looks, the whole thing is stuck and I can't even get it out.
I thought the spring was supposed to be on the outside?
Am I stupid or what is going on?
Thanks.

Hold the adjuster and spin turn the center "shaft" with a screwdriver

Thank you. It's my first Harley and my first post. Been reading alot here though.
It seems the previous owner did everything backwards. You should have seen the brake fluid.
Had a few hours sleep now..

hmiller, are you saying that the center pin can be adjusted with the locknut in place and that everything will come loose from the center pin?
Do I turn it counter clockwise?

I could be mistaken but I think you turn it clockwise to take that off. Guys please correct me if I am wrong.

Take a small screwdriver and turn that adjuster screw inside the nut.. I think that you'll need to turn it (screw) clockwise to remove the nut.. but you should see the nut move as soon as you start one way or the other..

once the nut is removed,take off the spring,, and re-install it the proper way, with the flat part of the nut facing the ramp of the clutch and the shoulder facing out.

take all slack out of the clutch cable, and then tighten the adjuster screw until you feel resistance... not too much resistance.. then back off a 1/4 turn then install the spring onto the outside of that.
