Drill and tap them if they wint come out. On my ib30vone came out, and one broke inside...I drilled the heads on the remaining bolts and used vice grips to finally get them out. I re-tapped all of the holes as I reassembled. On my boat the chain had snapped and I bought 19 feet of replacement chain from grainger...much cheaper than Edson...good luck
