Are you trying to remove the distributor?
If the distributor housing doesn't turn in the block, you are going to have to try and get a vise grip on the lower housing and try to turn it.
One problem - there is NO room back there.
You are sure that you loosened the hold down bracket? (had to ask)

ah, well you turn the housing not the shaft. the shaft moves with the engine. if for example you have replaced the dist and you are off a tooth you need to remove the dist and reinstall it in the correct orientation.

Yeah, I guess we need some clarification on what it is you're trying to do.

Are you trying to rotate (to adjust timing), or remove the distributor, or something else?
