installing blue spring problems...

So I went to install my blue spring in my regulator but ran into a snag. I went to remove the flaired end on the hard line and the nut seams seized on the hard line. When I turn the nut it also turns and wants to twist the hard line. What should I do next? I don't want to kink that line. Thanks guys!

I remember holding the fitting that threads in the aluminum with a 13/16" wrench I believe, to keep the line from twisting. It's been a year, I don't remember any major issues.

I also had to use 2 wrenches to get it loose.

Same here. Mine was so stuck, it took two men and a bottle of WD-40.
