Im trying to get the leftmost adaptor undone. Its a gas line fitting into the LPG convertor..

I think its a regular right hand thread...as u can see I have rounded the thing off and have tried to use vice grips but this thing is as tight as a nuns nasty..

Since you have rounded the nut on the left you will have to use visegrips

There is usually a thread sealer on the fittings but it will come un_done

with the correct sized spanners

The threads are just normal rotation.

The second nut on the left of the picture use the cortrect sized spanner and just turn it.



cheers

From my experience, these are RH thread. it will/should have some kind of sealant on it, perhaps if you poured some boiling water on it, it may soften the sealant.
However you will need to use vice grips now that the nut is rounded.. be careful not to crush the nut too tightly, as it will distort..

Cheers

The fitting on the right hand side of the pic is the left handed thread(the one that screws over the flexible hose)
