That nut is a bad one but always doable. It looks like the tube angle on that Zork may be more sever than it's supposed to be.
I have one of those ratchet action open end wrenches that I use for that bolt.
Another option (that I do all the time) is buy a $1 Harbor Freight open end wrench and modify it to fit using a grinder.
A third option is to remove the zork and put a smooth relief (nice word for dent) to make some room. The 321 is very pliable before heat cycling, so if you haven't blown too many flames out of it yet it will still bend easily.
Let me know which method works for you. In the mean time I'll take a look at making a change to give more room in that area so that conventional tools can always be used.
