Looks like you may be tightening it instead of loosening it? You need to hit the bottom to make it go lefty loose-y. See the video here:

That jam nut is relatively thin and large diameter and so it easy to get it slightly cocked and jammed up in there when you only strike it on one side. Try alternating your hammer/punch blows from one side of the slot in the nut to the other side to keep it straight in the threads and keep it from wanting to tilt in the hole. And, as the other poster said make sure that you are loosening it, not tightening.

I just did this a few months ago and it seems that you really have to smack that nut to get it to move so keep your strikes balanced. That is what worked for me.

After a bit of hammering I finally got it loose, thank you to both of you I probably would've given up and sold it and bought a new rack without your help lol

drkshdw,
Is the whole procedure for disassembly of the 944 rack on a you tube video? My rack needs to be resealed as well and I was unaware there were kits and I found watching your video instructive, and I am hoping you may have posted the whole thing on you tube or in this forum somewhere. Thank you.
