Hi just bought a 1956 claud butler cavalier bike. Just been trying to take it all apart for a service but I'm having trouble removing the headset. It looks to be threaded but there is only one spanner nut. The bit below it which is the bearing cup has three splined holes in it.

Anyone know the best way to try and remove it? Do I need a special tool.

Some tool kits for bikes have adjustable tool for removing the old style adjuster cup on a cup and cone B/B .If you have one ...try it .Or narrow nose pliers.
