[V8] Passenger side TB cover!!!!!! HELP

Yes I have removed the bolt under the black triangular tensioner bracket.  I
am having trouble with the bolt below the triangle.  I have removed the
three on the lower portion of the cover, (1 short 2 long) but seem to have
one left that is barely visible and sits below the tensioner bracket just
above a casting protrusion.  It is a recessed hex head bolt.   I can only
surmise that this is what is holding on the cover as I have removed all the
other bolts including the generator, yet it is definitely still stuck on the
motor.  I have taken a block of wood and hammer to it and it doesn't budge.
Thanks for the help.
