How to disassemble the rear block elements of Super Takumar 50mm f1.8 (8 elements)

Hello! So I'm done on the focusing problem of my takumar 50/1.4 and my next step to clean the last element on the rear part. I remove the triplet lens from the block and I have a hard time unscrewing the brass and separating the two parts that holds the triplet and the last two elements. What is the correct way to unscrew this part? Should I rotate it clockwise or counterclockwise? It sits very tight and using a rubber tool to hold the two piece together seems no use
