Antonio, they are probably put in with lock-tite.  I used it on my Chevelle's
flex-plate.  As far as loosening them, you might get by with putting a wrench on
a bolt head and turing the flywheel until the wrench jams against the housing,
then loosen another bolt.  Continue like this.  Also I have seen guys wedge a
wood block so that the teeth dig into it and keep the wheel from turning.


oletrucks is devoted to Chevy and GM trucks built between 1941 and 1959
