anyone?!?!? any ideas are better than none

Did you try to just turn it and see if it'll come off? I would try plumbers wrench and channel locks. Have you tried either?

EDIT: Replace it with stock parts!

Yeah, a pipe wrench should work on that round nut. Then, when you get it off replace it with a stock nut.

Is the shaft spinning inside the nut, and not backing out? Or is the nut spinning in the Channel locks? If its the first... Got a cut off wheel?
