Try heat

Hi. If the bolts are "jammed" in their threads by the presence of Loctite, you should use some heat. Loctite melts under heat so you can take things apart. I think the different colors melt at different temps.
Not clear from your posts whether the problem is rust drawn down into the threads when you unscrewed them, or the Loctite on the ends prevents them from coming out all the way. I suspect a little of both.
Kroil is great stuff... but, there are many "rust busters" out there if you can't get your hands on a can of Kroil.
