Angry Steering Box Adjustment

The steering box in my 1987 560 SL has too much play, and I decided to adjust it . A simple enough task but for access. I finally got the lock nut loose (crows foot) but it seems to have become one with the allen head adjusting screw. Can that whole adjusting assembly be unscrewed and removed from the car without causing a problem? Trying to break it loose on the car appears to be impossible (am currently soaking it with PB Blaster and leafing through various religious texts).

Thanks in advance for any help sent my way.

1986 560SEC: 150,000 miles, runs great, but I've got to sell it (too many cars for one man)
1987 560SL: 122,000 miles, used to run poorly, now (thanks to forum), runs great!
1997 GMC Jimmy: Turned out to be a turkey.
1989 T-Bird Super Coupe: 150,000 miles, still runs great. Ford got it right.
