Removing the primary main shaft locking nut on a 78' 1200 shovelhead. It is a left hand thread? isn't it?

Damn thing won't move and I want to make sure I'm leaning on it the right way.

Thanks

Clutch hub nut-clockwise to loosen. Engine sprocket-counter-clockwise to loosen. Did you bend the lock tab over? G
