Also if you are trying to remove it use a 6point socket so you don't round it off.

If you can get a fairly large diameter punch directly centered on the bolt and give it a very sharp, direct rap with a hammer, it might help. I've done this a number of times with success on frozen bolts. Of course I use the penetrating oil soak first.

Well I finally got the bolt off today, I had been soaking it with SeaFoam Penetrating lubricant for the past 5 days.
I had rounded off the head slightly trying to use a 12 point socket initially so I ended up having to buy and use a Grip Tite Socket. It was still a little tough to remove.

I took it out and cleaned it, ran the gennie for 5 minutes with it removed and no there was hardly any carbon in it.

Anyhow put it back together with a good dose of antiseize. So hopefully next time will be no big deal.
