Well I used the 2 nut method and got all but one out. She is stuck something fierce. No matter how tight I jam the nuts, the both turn left and if I hold the outer nut with a ratchet, shit dont budge. Tried some map gas heat, nothing. Need more leverage I think
then try 4 nuts, if there is room. get them as close to the bottom as possible.
use 2 wrenches, on opposite sides so the torque is balanced.
another trick that sometimes works is to hit another corner of the part in an attempt to cause some rotation about the bolt.
do that while applying torque. don't get too crazy, the parts probably have machined & interlocking mating surfaces.
