Part 21 screws into assemble part 170. The shaft on part 170 broke off. I have a replace assembly for 170, but I can't remove part 40. I tried impack wrench but nothing buged. (bolt comes off with clockwise turn) Any suggestions?
Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

So you actually need a spanner wrench to remove this nut. This wrench slides over the nut with longer handles so that you can hit the handle with a hammer to break the nut free. Other than that, you'll really be struggling to remove this nut. Possibly having a large adjustable wrench that fits the nut and hitting it with a hammer will work?, but it's definitely not easy to remove at all.

This nut should be counter-clockwise to loosen, unlike the nut you removed.
