Using a long 1/2in breaker bar or ratchet of good quality and a socket, place socket on bolt and position ratchet or breaker bar so that the end rests on the frame or the ground on the DRIVER side . Make sure you have the ratchet in the "off" position and turn the ignition to the start position for a split second while someone else holds the rathet or bar on the bolt. This will break the bolt loose, and if the engine starts when turning ignition to start for a split second it will simply unscrew the bolt all the way. If the starter isn't strong enough to break it loose the first time move the ratchet or breaker bar away from it's resting point just a little bit so that it has to travel slightly before hitting the frame or the ground and this WILL break the bolt loose. "VERY IMPORTANT" make sure end of ratchet or breaker bar is is on TOP of the frame or on the ground on the DRIVER side. Glad to help.
