Devin Scheller of course you knocked the crimped portion of the locknut outward with a small chisel and a hammer. After that, you'll need either an impact wrench or a big extension wrench. The torque on the locknut is anywhere between 174 and 235 ft/lbs so it does require quite some "elbow grease".
