Default Removing Gauge?

I'm trying to remove a gauge to add a secondary regulator to put to a manifold. Any suggestions? I just flat out can't unscrew this.

Good chance it's a left-hand thread (lefty tighty/righty loosey) so before you break something give that a try.

Also if you don't seen any white "teflon" tape peeking out around the threads, it may have been cemented in place, so you may be fighting that as well...

Cheers!

Actually, the guys at kegconnection took a picture of my current gauge and sold me a RHT, but i can see plenty of teflon tape. I think it may be a matter of clearance and being a pansy. Hope to get this loose soon.
