I am changing my motor and am trying to separate the old motor from the seal plate. The bolts are too tight. I tried to use a breaker bar, but still cannot loose them. The bolts look fine, I attached a picture of them.

Any suggestion on how to loose them? Thanks very much!

You might need to spray & pre-soak them for a while with a good penetrating oil like PB Blaster or Kroil. Then try to "tap" the heads of the bolts to help loosen anything still frozen. Maybe even try a slight tightening to see if that helps to break the threads loose before going counterclockwise.
