Crank shaft nut V6

The crank shaft nut on a V6 (mine at least) is larger than 1 1/2", mine is almost 1 5/8 (42mm) couldn't find a 42 socket though. I have put a lot of torque on this thing to get it to break loose and it wont move. Before I take a torch to it to expand the nut....anyone have a tip for getting the thing off? Also I want to make certain it's not an opposite tread. I can't imagine that it would be but.... also mine has a flange to bend down for locking, everybody else have the same?
