i need help

ok this is the problem that i am having... the engine brackets on the back of my boat are too high... i want to remove them but i have a problem removing them i took off the bolts on both sides of the steel rods but i noticed i couldnt get them off then i have taken a closer look and noticed that they have tapped thread in the engine brackets.. and in the engine plates (inside the boat) so both bolts are off still unable to get them of the question is how can i remove steel threaded rods? there is a photo for more clarification.
and offcourse https://fbcdn-sphotos-f-a.akamaihd.n...86666719_n.jpg the threaded rod
if there is a tool to remove them or just brute force let me know because i really need to remove them and i am running out of time.

If its just a rod with noting on the inside you can take two bolts and tighten them on the rod and use them to turn the rod and remove it .
There is a special tool to remove studs/rods but i have no idea what its called .

may be...

If with the good solutions given obove, you cannot succed,It looks like the threaded rods are installed in a threaded hole of your steel angled bar, then the base of the threaded rods are installed in the '' engine base'' surrounded by poored high strenght resine , and worst, the base of the threaded rods seems to have something like a nut, or a tee tack welded inside the resine.
If your steel plate is installed like this, you have no other solution than cut the stailess steel threaded rods, flat, then drill the threaded rods at the lenght of the angled bar.remove the angled bar.
After this , you have no other solution than cut the exceedind threaded rods, and reinstalland relocate other threaded rods in the ''engine base" in a better way than this one.
if you're going to drill the cutted threaded rods, better to use COBALT drill bits than HSS one's.
I hope to be clear enough in my explanation.
good luck.
