Is it catching in the same groove the snap ring slides around?

That gear runs the oil pump ,it should screw out .Grab a hold of it and pry up gently and screw it one way or the other .

You don't have to hold the engine ,it just screws out .I don't remember which direction but it's one way or the other .It's  the worm gear that turns the oil pump.

Lift up on the gear and turn clockwise.   It should start to unscrew from the oiler.
