So I got one of them off by prying at it for literally hours and spraying WD40 like its my job on that damn bolt that holds it in. Are there any little tips or tricks that can help me? I got the bigger bolt out but I cant for the life of me get the smaller one that actually holds the rod in place because its rusted as hell [headbang] . If anyone has tips or tricks let me know.

Heat is the best, get a cheap torch and get it nice and red, then hit it with a wrench. Also soak in pblaster.
