Open end wrench and some leg force. As you are finding out, there is not much that will fit in that location and allow proper torque take-up. At 184 lbs-ft you are going to spread a regular crows foot even if it is a flange nut style.
Although, If you can find a torque extender in that metric size you might be able to use a torque wrench on there.
