as i understand it there is the big nut with the packing material that u move closer every year to prevent to much water comming in but the other nut which is very thin is used to keep the bit one in place so if this is correct i have to questions

1 why arnt mine right next to each other

2 why isnt the little one moving

1) They should be. Big one is for adjustment, and little one is to lock up to the big one to prevent movement.

2) Probably seized. Use some penetrating fluid, let it sit overnight, and try tomorrow. Common for nonferrous metals.

You know that you have to put pressure on both nuts at the same time in opposite directions, right?

You are trying to get the thin nut to go lefty loosey while countering that force against the big nut.

You have to have two wrenches on at the same time. What tools are you using?
