Kinda fishing related.....Have a 4000FA I was going to clean and lube for friend. Handle will not unscrew. Used penetrating oil on opposite side of reel after taking cap off. Held pinion gear with wrench but unable to budge. Anyone with suggestions?

With rod in hand, reel facing down, handle is on right. I have several and I double checked which direction to turn with one of mine.

Used a pencil soldering iron on end of handle shaft inside drive gear to heat up then used Marvel mystery oil. Still won't budge. I think I'll cut my loses and give it back to him.
