Use a good penetrating oil such as Mouse Milk or PB Blaster. They really
are superior. They've gotten things apart that
many of the others didn't touch.
Let PB blaster soak over night and they usually come right out. It's
unlikely the SS has galled in Aluminum. It's more likely there some
Aluminum Oxide swollen up in there preventing the bolt from coming out.
