You are trying to go clockwise? Those are left handed threads. Usually what Iíve found since itís corse threads a lot of build up from scum and soap harden basically making a loctite. I try taking the nut off then on and repeat different directions to break up that crud. Usually 15 F words and the fore mentioned works.
