I don't think heat is your ally in this case - I'd go for judicious use of an impact driver or a good fitting bit in a socket adaptor.

Regards Mick

I'll try that Mick, also some wd40

No nuts normally, as they would get in the way of the rear chain. The screws can be tight if a little corrosion has taken place, I have also removed them using an impact driver. although there is not a lot of room to swing a hammer to give a firm blow , also use an impact driver bit with a good tight fit in the slot.

As an aside to this suggestion, I have been looking out for some impact driver bits to replace my worn/modified bits, but have not seen any recently at autojumbles, where I used to pick them up, and have not seen anything reasonably priced online. Are they going out of fashion?

I found my impact driver, but no go. Yes the frame is a bit in the way. It feels like I need a heavy metal weight on the other side. I'll strip the clutch off to get behind it with a lump of heavy metal. Unluckily for my son in law who's staying with us for awhile he can hold it while I hammer. :D

Dont hit it to hard as this part 'hangs' a bit from the inner chaincase.
as a final move you could tag weld a bit of rod on top of the screw and lever it ?

Has Vincent says it is cantilevered aluminium so don't hit it too hard, I would try heat combined with an impact screw driver, be careful that you do not snap it off at the head of the screw. On reassembly use stainless steel screws coated in wax oil, good luck.

Perhaps the screws have been chewed underneath??

Still won't come out, blooming things.. Yes I was a bit worried about hitting them too hard. Should be able to take the inner primary chain case off complete with battery carrier. I can then give the challenge to Alan :D

Well this is the last post of the year, I've been a bit quieter of late with work begining to get easier with retirement proper looming. I'm not going to completely finish though for a couple of years so I'll keep my diary going for another year at least.
2020 is going to be busy Ariel wise for us in Hampshire as we will be organising next years Annual rally near Winchester.

But one last short ride on my Black Huntmaster to Cadnam to meet our Mick on his 54 Huntmaster.
As my "WE" is having its refurbishment I'll ride the "Black Fly" in anger for the next few month's
