Powerhead removal

Anyone have any sensible suggestions on how to get my powerheads off? both seem to be seized on probably in the long studs, got all 10 nuts off but the fork lift is just picking the whole boat up and it aint budging an inch!!

Had this on a carb'd 2.5 we had to split a couple of years ago... Loads of heat where the long studs are (proper acetylene heat not a puny blowtorch), and a forklift did it in the end! If you're using a forklift is there a way you can anchor the boat down to the forklift chassis to stop it lifting?

They have only been on for 2 years so am surprised they stuck this badly. I guess its because on 15" mids that part of the mid is in the water at rest so plenty of time for the salt to do its damage.

Dan, pulling them apart to do the bushes and change for s/s trays that you are making for me
