Nut won't loosen to change Alternator belt on 1977 300D

I'm trying to change the alternator belt for a 77 300D and can't get the nut to loosen. I tried penetrating oil, but no luck. I heard that heating a nut with a blowtorch can make it easier to loosen, but I'm worried that that might mess some stuff up with the alternator or other parts of the car. Do you guys think that would be safe to try? Any other suggestions?
