    The goal is to heat it up, not melt it. A small butane torch should suffice. Once it's warm/hot take a punch and hammer to the bolt and knock it a few times to send some vibrations through to hopefully knock the corrosion, thread lock, etc. that's holding it loose before trying to unbolt it.

    Should be enough breakaway torque then. It's possible this was tightened way over spec from the factory, normal torque settings for this bolt are only like 50 ft lbs. Sometimes I've had lug nuts on so tight that even my Dewalt 1/2" impact wouldn't budge them. I had to force all my weight on a breaker bar to get them to move.

    You could always strip the bolt out, and use a slightly larger bolt diameter and retap the hole as long as it can pass through the motor mount.
