I dont think the bolts will come out until I get the cover off. Then There
will be enough meat to grab with vise grips. Is there something that will
actually eat the rust? I have soaked it in liquid wrench and thought about
some acid. I lightly beat on the cover and drove a thin wedge between it
and the block but it hasnt budged yet.

Heat the cover with a propane torch around the bolt area without heating
the bolt. This will expand the cover enlarging the holes. keep the flame
moving and don't get the aluminum red hot. rock it out with a large standard
screw driver tapping on the bolt and cover now and then to brake up the
corrosion. it should come apart in short time!
By the way a propane torch is the best way to find vacuum leaks. with no
flame and turned on low, with the engine running guide the nozzle around the
intake. If you come across a vacuum leak the engine rpm will increase. after
your finished there is no mess! $.04 works on pre '73s so this isn't poop
wasted time! :]
