top radiator to transmission connector very stiff 900 1992

I am trying to remove the radiator on my 960 so that I can create some space to remove a broken bolt. The top connector to the radiator is very tight and I am worried that I will break the plastic side compartment of the radiator if I apply too much torque.

I have applied PB Blaster and some tiger piss to the connector and I am letting it wait overnight.

It is a 17mm connector and I applied as much force as I could muster to the fairly large wrench without moving it. I also tapped it both ways to see if I could loosen it. No luck so far.

I am afraid of using a cheater to get more torque on the wrench because it could tear the whole connector loose from the plastic and a new radiator would be on the horizon.

Any thoughts?

I am trying to upload an image but as per usual I am failing.
