I meant to take a quick photo, but was in a hurry to watch a football game and forgot. I will get one this weekend though.

Here is a quick photo. I have a few more if anyone wants to see another angle. I tried my 1/2" ratchet with a 2' breaker bar and flexed the ratchet but didn't budge the bolt. I did not have much time to mess with it and probably won't until this winter. I want to try heat before I trailer it somewhere. The pic on bottom is showing the ring that I popped loose. I tried to straightened it back as good as I could, so it doesn't look as bad.

So is it both the bolt and the pull pin that won't budge???

Pop the ring off the pin. Weld a nut to the pin and take a big impact gun to get the pin moving. Once it is out, replace the pin. Heat would be my last option.

I saw one (bolt only though) that the guy drilled two small holes through to the bolt 1/3 and 2/3 from the top so PB Blaster could be sprayed in

Not sure how else to get lubricant in there....

Both pin and bolt are stuck. I figure if I can get one unstuck then hopefully the other will follow once I fold the tongue back. Sodar, that is an interesting suggestion. Wish I had a buddy with a welder close by.

Drilling is also a logical suggestion although I would rather not if I don't have to. I love all the suggestions and will try everything I can. Unfortunately getting to the lake for the rest of the year will be a challenge as my wife just told me last night that she is done with the lake for the year. I will see what I can do the next time I get down there and let you know what works. Again thanks for the suggestions.
