Basic lathe help

>I just purchased a Delta 46-715 lathe. This is my first lathe so bear with me while I describe my problems. I am just through the assembly stage, and on the headstock I am supposed to remove the round disk that is used for bowl turning. The instructions state to insert the bar into the shaft and turn the wrench counterclockwise. Unfortunately, this nut will not budge. I called Delta and they recommended installing a 2x4 with screws into the bowlturning device, and use a pipe wrench to remove the nut. Still no go.

What am I doing wrong?
