How strong are the PTO plate bolts?

Looks like I need to get the PTO cover plate off to check the splines on my good 'ole LT-77 output shaft. But I'm a bit worried about the condition of the cover bolts, and don't want to snap the heads off of any of them. You just HAVE to love steel bolts into aluminum cases, but I digress....

Anybody else have any pointers on this one?

If you have trouble getting the bolts out, the silver lining is that the rear of the t-case is easy to access for drilling out and re-tapping. I'm sure someone who actually knows something (like Rob D) can say for sure, but many of the holes in the t-case go all the way through, so the fasteners stay nicely lubed. I have a bad front seal on mine anyway, so my entire chassis is self-lubricating, but I digress...

I may just cross my fingers and ignore it a bit more too. It just has to last another year and a half until the truck is paid off, I plan on doing an R380 swap and new clutch then anyways. Or maybe a ZF, haven't decided yet.
