old man tricks for stuck & rusted bolts

Free stuck bolts-
tighten a bit first to crack rust seal
Heat til red then dowse with water to shock the bolt/nut connection
If you don't have an acetylene torch get a Mapp gas plumbers torch, usually hot enough- BE CAREFUL of fuel lines / wires, whatever is on the other side of what you are working on. NEVER assume a fuel tank or line is far enough away. Explosions will ruin your whole day and you ARE working on a machine old enough to rust.
