They get locked onto the end of the shaft?  I assume they are supposed to come off? Both sides seem to be the same.  once cracked off twist freely until the last 3 mm of the thread.

Apply lots of easing fluid (wd40 / similar), and if you have one use another (1/2" UNF) nut as a sacrificial one, to re-form the thread. To do that, tighten the other nuts, hold the shaft secure using a spanner on one of  the existing nuts, and then put the new nut on the thread tighten and undo, and repeat. That should clean the threads enough that the old nut will pass.

That assumes you don't have a 1/2" UNF die to clean the threads.
