Another trick to try is to thermally shock the fastener. I've used this technique before on exhaust bolts/studs with good success. Heat the fastener up with a propane torch, it doesn't need to be cherry red just a few hundred degrees. Next, soak the fastener with something like CRC Freeze Off. Be prepared for lots of smoke and even a possible flash fire depending on how hot you got the fastener. After hosing down the fastener for 10 or so seconds, hit the top of it with a punch and a hammer. Use a solid steel hammer not a dead blow. If the fastener still won't move then STOP and either repeat or give the liquid penetrant more time to do its job. Good Luck.
