Never use red loctite on those bolts...bad enough using blue. I have never used loctite on any of those rail bolts. In fact i've brushed some grease on them and socked them down well.

pretty hard to beat the heat wrench. the other thing you can do is remove other cross shafts in the front area so you can spread the one rail a bit. use vise grips and hold the shaft. if the alum spacers need replacing? just grab that with the vise grip real tight. then use a air impact wrench. while a battery impacts are good. it no competition for a IR 1/2" titanium air impact. 600 ft. lbs of torque. if it won't move it will break it off.

Try some pb blaster or similar stuff on the joint as it cools if this doesn't work the first time...i've had pretty good luck with soaking the joint/bolt for a hr before trying again.

I recently picked up a 24v kobalt cordless impact wrench at lower for $100 plus the buying a battery. That sucker will snap off those bolts id seized. I was really skeptical of those battery powered impact tools but now i'm a believer. The air tools are great more for the everyday shop guy that has to depend making a living off them, but for lighter duty, the occasional doit your seller, no hoses, no cords, you can't do much better.
