The pros just break 'em (by tightening) or cut 'em (with a torch, you
could use a sawzall).  I learned here that ammonia (yes) breaks down
rust.  Experimented on some exhaust pieces I had to dismantle to use on
my car, I was able to undo all three cat bolts the "normal" way.  Just
brush on the ammonia, let stand for a few minutes, try again.
