while you guys are duking it out ,i'll just mention this.. as a steel worker most of my life( small and big) this has worked for me and I dont care much for all therum babble.. heat your stud up ,same time have the twist force on it. after about red hot for a couple of seconds it should let loose. in case that dose not happen be ready to quinch it with your favorit loose juice [wd40]or equal.
If you have ever solderd pipes togather you can kind of imagine whats going on there it just gets sucked in!!
repeat the operation for really stubern stuff.
ON bolts like the nasty flywheel heat the head( not propane)and be ready with the rattle wrench and they will fly off.
make sure the window is open cause it gets a bit cloudy in the quinch proces.
