Kevin,

I'm guessing your pedal box is similar to ours over here. Can you see what type of heads the bolts have? Reason I ask it that over the years, these can get swapped for just about anything or they might even be original.

Regardless of bolt head, I use a long extension on a ratchet with the appropriate socket, posi-drive or allen-head tool to get at the bolt. Hopefully, whatever is down there isn't stripped and will come out.

What year is your 'B'? The pedal boxes are different.
