123pugsy Well, I finally got it.

Took the whole assembly out from the jack and clamped it in the vice.

Heated up the nut with a propane torch and it must have melted the Locktite on the threads.

I have no idea why there would be locktite there.

001mustang Probably an illusion but the threads appear to be left handed in the photo.

Make sure and verify the threads are right handed as 123 said.

Good idea; the vise grip has little surface area in contact.

Perhaps:

Clamp nut in a vise; not too tight.

Wrap shaft with tape.

Wrap leather belt on top of tape.

Use a large pipe wrench on top of the leather.



Cooling shaft with compressed O2 will also help.

123pugsy An impact sounds like the way to go.

They don't make these things left hand thread by any chance , do they?

I've got a seal kit for my tranny jack, but I can't get the nut open.

I've got it clamped with a vice grip chain clamp, but still doesn't hold it and the whole cylinder spins with the nut.

Any tips??
