as smithy said rp7, i use crc 5.56 spary it around the bolt head and let it sit for a minute or two then spray it again. work you spanner left and right to crack the bolt and also allow to soak into the threads. for exaple loosen the bolt 3-4 turns and then tighten it 2 turns then repeat loosen it then tighten it. this will help to dissolve and rust thats binding the threads together

if ya can't get the bolts out of the head then remove the ones on the front of the pump,,,a bit more fiddly but better than stuffing it...
