When you get the new nut from Amel, I would take it to a machine shop with a photo of mine. Make sure you measure the maximum length of the wrench that is needed. If the machine shop takes more than 30 minutes to make the wrench it is too long. It is cut out with a band saw and rounded on a bench grinder. I am not happy with the slip, basin- adjustable wrench for this purpose. I am sure with a properly fitting wrench you will be able to at least make the 1/6 turn and possibly 1/8th.
The basin wrench was not made for the force that is needed, it slips and mars the nut.

Thanks all for the replies. I found that the previous owner left me a slip nut tool and wouldn’t you know it, it was tightened to exactly the width I needed for the packing but.
