Ree,

You need a set of allen wrenches designed to fit a 3/8 drive ratchet and if necessary, an adaptor to an impact wrench. Failing that, cut a straight length off the allen wrench, set it in the bolt head and whack it. If you can, use a long enough wrench to clamp vise grips on it and apply sone counter clockwise pressure as you hit it. Then try to unscrew it again. All of the hold of a bolt, if not corroded, is the binding of the head to the surface by the pulling of the thread. Whacking it with an impact wrench or as described, shortens the distance between the head face and the threads. This will almost allways loosen it.

Happy hammering,

Ron
