Is There a Trick to Removing This Cartridge

I am trying to remove the cartridge from this Moen kitchen faucet. I do not know what model number it is and can't seem to find the exact one on the Moen site.

In any event, I have removed the retaining pin and I suspect I am supposed to pull on that brass piece on the top but it will not budge. I don't want to break it. Is there a trick to getting these cartridges out. I just want to lubricate the 0-rings with silicone lubricant so the spout will swivel a little more freely but I can't get this cartridge out.

Appreciate any help.

Yes, it should pull straight out once the clip is removed. If it's too stubborn for a set of pliers, you can get a puller at your local hardware or big box.
