Help with replacing clutch in 1995 Ranger

Hey Everyone,
I've got a question for you. I don't know who exactly i need to go to and talk about this, just registered today. I've got a 1995 Ford Ranger. It's got a manual tranny to it and the clutch recently went out. I got a new clutch for it which wasn't bad at all, but now my buddy, dad and i are trying to replace it on our own. I know that we need to disconnect the drive shaft, 4x4 shaft, and the the tranny itself to get to the clutch, but we haven't even gotten to the part where we disconnect the drive shaft. One of the bolts on a support bar under the tranny WILL NOT BUDGE. we've tried heating it up and then hitting it with a air ratchet, even tried cutting it with a nut cutter, but nothing is working...i need help, i miss driving my baby around

the best rust penetrator is a 50/50 mix of atf and acetone(very flamable), the next best is liquid wrench.hit it with that....then get a 1/2 breaker bar with a pipe that should do it............can you access the bolt with a sawsall?

make sure you replace the slave cylinder with a good brand.....

since you already tried to cut, dut thru vertically in an X pattern then use your air chisel to cut the smaller portions off.

Or get a sawzall and have at it.

it sounds like you might have trashed the head of it.fyi next time make sure you have the correct socket and only use a 6 point one and lube it up the day before with a rust penatrtor........try like we suggested and see if you can get a sawsall in there.......i believe the bolt goes into one of those sliding clip nut things like the ones that hold the bed on!

and not to sound like a nag.....but make sure you replace the slave cylinder!!!!!!!!!!
