Default Eagle rods bolts

So I'm ready to start putting my engine back together and I went to take the rod caps off and I can't get them off for anything. Is this normal with eagle rods, do they normally put them on so tight?

Did you vise the rod down to hold it while you broke the bolt loose

They are torqued to the value the bolts are supposed to be when installed so they can hone the big end.

Buy a vise and either buy a rod holder like the proform rod vise or buy a set of aluminum cover jaws so you don't ding up your rods.

Clamp them hard vertically and use a 1/2" size breaker bar with appropriate socket.

Just use an impact and you can just hold the rod in your hand (with gloves on).
