Tailgate handle/latch assembly replacement for 1800ES 1800 1972

I am in the process of rebuilding the tailgate/latch of my 1800ES with new parts and am having a problem removing the 4-pin ring nut that secures the internal latch assembly to the tailgate handle. So far, I have tried generous applications of PB Blaster and attempting to turn with a snap ring plier without damaging the pin slots, but the ring nut doesn't budge. I think I need a 4-pin spanner nut socket I can use with a socket wrench, but haven't been able to find one with the right size. Here are the dimensions of the ring nut measured with calipers:
O.D. 26.8 mmm
I.D. 3 mm
pin slot width: 2.3 mm

Information on where I can purchase such a 4-pin socket or another way to remove the ring nut would be much appreciated. If I can't get it off, I will have to install the latch assembly in the old handle.

Thanks for reading.
