Stupid question -- did you screw it on with the three set screws?
Thank you! That did the trick. It didn't occur to me to look under the platform for set screws.

As mentioned above - go underneath the head mounting platform (the top of the center column) and loosen (or even remove) the three setscrews that are inserted from the bottom of the platform. Then you can unscrew the head.
You'll probably have to tighten the pan lock on the head fairly tight to get the head to come loose.
Good advice as well. I did have to tighten the lock to get the head to come loose.
Now that I have everything apart, I can see how everything works but it was definitely causing me to scratch my head before.
