Hey guys thanks for all the suggestions. I like the ultrasonic idea. I am fairly sure that some of the aluminum threads have broken off inside and are getting jammed when I try to remove the bolt. The reason for my hesitance is if the bolt breaks off I will have to remove the front timing chain cover on the engine which I really really dont want to do. I have spent some time rocking it back and forth but it dosent seem to be getting any easier or better. Its a 13mm bolt to it would be fairly easy to snap it off. I considered applying heat on the aluminum part where the threads are located. But have not done it yet. I am hoping for a really good suggestion from some of the old pro's that frequent this site.

Keep the ideas comming. You never know we might invent something that we all really need.
