I wonder if somebody used thread lock when the put the nuts on. If so, can they be safely heated with a torch?

Damage the heads? What are you using? A proper tool should never damage the heads. Use a 6 point socket.

That's what I am using and not one of the 3 will budge.

I'm still confused. The heads should never get damaged. They are M6, I think, and would break with little force. If you had said "I snapped one", that would make more sense. Work them back and forth. Give them a little heat. Send a nasty email to whoever did the timing belt.

Can't recall. Are they clockwise or counter clockwise?

The video in post 73 appears to show standard threading so counter clockwise to loosen.

If that's the case I would just heat them gently with a torch and tap with a hammer onto the ratchet to shock them loose.

Heat didn't help. One is rounded and can't get a socket to grip it. Other two aren't far off.

Looks like they've been abused and needs to be replaced. What are you using to turn them? Will a six point socket fit over them?

My 10 mm 6 point socket did this. They were fine until I started meddling.

And I still have to get the things out to set the timing, and replace them.

The truck does not hate you. Whoever last touched those bolts should be flogged.

A quality 6 point on properly should hold those and not cause damage. You can also get the special ones to grip rounded heads.

If it were me, I would stop and order what is needed to do a timing belt including new bolts. Whoever was in there last can't be trusted and I would redo the work properly for piece of mind.

I'm beginning to wonder if they are the wrong size bolts and that's why they are stuck and stripping.

Sounds like a little bit of self flogging might be in order. They may have been over tightened before. They shouldn't be that tight. There is a torque spec for all the bolts in the timing assembly. Make sure to find out what they are and get a torque wrench so you can tighten everything to the correct spec. The service manual is good and I also have a great Diff Lock article that I can send you that I found very helpful. Not sure how you managed to slip off with a socket. If they still will go on I would tap a hammer onto the socket handle (in the right direction!) to get them loose. Definitely get those replaced.

I've done those bolts on mine dozens of times and you only need to tighten them just a bit past hand tighten to hold your timing in place.

No. I gave up. Now I just add a fuel additive every time I fill it and know that around a certain temp she's going to have some white smoke for a few minutes. Bolts are on the list to deal with at some point.

You need a bolt extractor, you can get one for cheap on eBay.

When the time comes, if you would like a hand, PM me... I'm in Golden. I would enjoy meeting another local Rover owner. Im also fair with a wrench....
