Problems taking apart reg, Air America preset 4500

Ok, so I've got an Air America reg that is leaking. Well, I figure I can fix it with an o ring or something. Problem is, I can't for the life of me unscrew the bonnet from the threads or whatever it is. I've already removed the set screw, I have no idea if it is loc-tited or not. I have a strap wrench that I just bought. It's helping me apply pressure, but still can;t remove it. One idea is it may be reverse threaded, or perhaps have loctite. Ideas?

Are you sure it's leaking from the reg and not from somewhere else?

I'm about 95% sure. There a 3 smalls holes below the bonnet(purge holes maybe), and it seems to be coming from one of those, I pushed my finger over it, and it stopped, so I'm pretty certain there is probably an o ring or some seal in there that is leaking.

Honestly, I would send it to Guerrilla Air and have them take care of it. Since some of the people of GA were some of the people from AA, and they offer excellent customer service, that would probably be your best bet.
