The bolts on mine were a little soft. One stripped completely, and the others deformed a little but still came out fine. I had to weld a bolt onto the top of the stripped one to pull it out.

I guess the advice is to try tightening them slightly to break them loose before removing them. That way if the wrench starts to slip, it'll do it in the opposite direction you need the wrench to grip.

They are lock tight and have galvanic reaction from dislike metals. Use a torch to heat tgen a hammer driven manual impact to move them
