Thats what I am afraid of... I am trying everything on the "outside" of 
the bolt first... fortunately there will be some of the bolt left to 
turn when the oild pan comes out... (yes I am still working on it...  
couple hrs last night and a bunch of dremel cut off bits to get ONE 
almost shaved off... argh... going to get a reverse bit today

Thanks Again Everyone!  Perhaps I should ask for thoughts and prayers 
on this one!  j/k
