Hello. My name is Tan.

Due to corrosion you will have to use a substantial amount of heat. This means acetylene/oxygen torch.

You are referring to #69 and 70 correct?http://www.marineengine.com/parts/evinrude-johnson-parts-diagrams/JOHNSON/46609.gif

You difinitely don't want to break the bolts off so the real heat is the only way to get then out.
