Usually? Damn near always.
These days I slice the old lines through before starting and take the oil cooler to the bench. With care, you can grind away the old nut until you _JUST_ see the threads showing through. Do it on both sides, 180 degrees apart. Then, with a nice sharp cold chisel, open up one side and take it off.
The body of the oil cooler is factor n weaker than it needs to be to take the undoing torque.
