the next thing I would try is to take a good heavy punch, and smack the bolts. Not hard enough to break them, but hard enough to possible break them loose.

The other observation is: if I was doing it, the penetrating oil (Liquid Wrench) would be oozing from everywhere. Soak those suckers good. WD-40 isn’t a good enetrating oil in my opinion.

How long have they soaked? I’d have continually soaked them for a day or two.

Also +1 on the heat. It doesn’t take a lot, they don’t have to be cherry read to be effective.
