You should be using a high quality flare wrench, 11 mm I believe.

Edit: If you've already rounded off the nut, try some heat and a vice grip. Or, if the nut's not too bad, cut off the line and try some heat and a 11mm socket. But then you'll have to re bubble flare the line.

You may still have the clutch delay valve in place.

johnstern is correct.

In your climate, the fitting is no doubt rusted in place. If you have knackered the fitting, you may need a pair of Vise-Grips.
