The seacock is frozen. You need to loosen the jam nut and loosen the nut that holds the innerds in just a tiny bit then spray the thing liberally with a lubricant such as WD40 and let it soak for several hours or even days. Then try it. If that doesn't work you may try loosening the nut further and tapping on the opposite end with a small hammer to break it free.

As for the emergency tiller, they usually fit over the rudder post. At least mine does.
