79 TA disc brake problems

The right front disc brake caliper can't come apart because one of the two bolts is stuck. I tried a lot of things to get it off, it won't come off. I suspect that I crossthreaded it somehow last time I put it on. What can I do to get this thing off?

Did you strip out the Allen bolt head? Is your Allen wrench or bit rounded off? Try a new wrench, or if all else fails, vise grips on the head itself. The threads are only at the head end (the rest of it's a pin), so applying heat to the bracket might help.
