Clutch Removal was created by srsnow

Are there any tips to removing the clutch pressure plate? It seems the screws are in at super human torque levels. My JIS screw driver gets a good bite on it but I just can not get enough leverage on the screwdriver to get them to break loose. O tried looking for JIS socket but no one seems to make any

Hope they've not been loctite'd in as is unnecessary. If i had to i'd use a T-bar with a nice new sharp [not twisted or damaged] impact tip in so it won't slip out easily. Don't impact it but T-bar twist should break it free easily. Turning to the left of course facing it!!.

I hadn't been pre-warned not to use an impact driver, so that's what I used. Just the kind you hammer. I don't have a JIS tip, but I have a number 3 Phillips tip that fit the bolts very well.

I subsequently took the clutch apart again, and that time I just used a that same Phillips bit, with the ratchet handle. The first time I took it off, the screws had been on there for 50 years.
