Seized engine transom bolts

Hi all

Some technical wisdom needed please. I have an 8hp Yamaha outboard, the tightening transom bolts are very very tight, one moves with allot of persuasion and the other I canít get to budge at all. Any suggestions?

Thanks! Click image for larger version

Obviously penetrating oil over a period of time, boiling water can also work

RIBase
Plus Gas is a very good penetrating release oil. Incidentally, the hand screws, get a monkey wrench on the end, but not the extended swivel part of the handle, nearer the screw thread end and lever from there.

Be careful if using a wrench on the nuts. I have a johnson 4.5 with 2 sheared threads which is in need of repair where I was over enthusiastic with one. They snapped very easily and are a bugger to drill out too.

So what worked was:

Knocked out the pin which holds the plastic lever on, took plastic lever off. Got a long adjustable wrench and levered, working it bit by bit while spraying GT85, as it worked around the thread whatever was seizing it worked loose and both now loosen and tighten perfectly.

Part above looks like tilt lock which will support it in a raised position
