There are at least 4 threads showing. My thought was to add an additional AN washer to ensure adequate torque.
Add the right number of washers (no more than 3) to get the castellations on the nut roughly level with the hole in the bolt. Tighten the nut to 160 inch pounds. See if the cotter will fit. If so, push it through and bend it over. If not, continue tightening the nut (to no more than 190 inch pounds) until things align and you can push a cotter through. If you can't things aligned before 190 inch pounds, change the washer stackup - maybe eliminate a standard washer and replace it with an "L" washer, which is half the thickness.
In any case, your job is to add, subtract, and substitute washers until you can tighten the nut to 160-190 inch pounds and "finish" with the correct hole alignment.
