Toilet Tank Help


Can someone please help me with getting these off the tank. The two smaller parts just keep turning, and the bigger part is just stuck on there. The toiet is from 1957.

You are butting a wide blade screw driver on the slot inside the tank to keep the screw from turning right?

It's going to take two people to do this.
Since the bolts been there that long I'd be using my impact screw gun with an adaptor so it will fit a socket by now. If that did not work I'd use my sawsall.

i would use a multi tool "fein, ridgid, bosch,or milwaukee" less aggressive vs sawzall and cut nut so you can put screwdriver in to cut and turn which will spread nut then slide off of threads
