Removal of a Price Pfister single handle kitchen faucet

I have an old Price Pfister, single handle kitchen faucet that I am trying to replace.

The faucet seems to be held in place by a bracket, the shape of a horseshow, with a 2" (or so) nut protruding from it, and the nut has a screw in the middle (no Philips). Please see picture.

The nut and the horseshow are sort of rusted out, so I cannot tell what the nut threads into.

To remove the bracket, which I assume is what will allow me to remove the faucet, do I need to unscrew the nut itself, or the screw in the middle of that nut?

The nut is hollow and screws onto a threaded extension from the faucet body above. The collar is to spread out the force from the nut. Use either a ratchet wrench of a flat head screw driver to remove.

You can use a nut driver to unscrew the long nut. I've always been able to turn the nut with a 6" crescent wrench. Bend and break off the supply lines if you need to, they will break easily.
