Two options.

1) Sacrifice an 8mm hex key by welding it to the nut. You have OA torch. Use it. The heat from welding will help free the corrosion. Only weld at the outside edge of the hex key/barrel nut.

2) Use a dremel tool to split the nut. you should be able to cut a pie shaped wedge large enough to chisel the nut right off.

put a few other nuts back on to support the weight of the HE while doing either of these procedures.
Jamie - I can explain it to you. But I can not understand it for you.
