Tips on loosening the adjuster screw

Do you have any tips on how to loosen this screw? Went to turn it for a while then it "locked". Tried to pull out the axle so far that I got a whole sleeve on but can't screw it on for fear of pulling too hard and it will come off.

There have been others that have broken the chain adjuster bolt. One problem is a small drain hole in the swing arm just forward of the weld plugs and water stays in the arm, and rusts end of the bolt.

Clear the drain, spray your favorite penatrating/rust buster and work the bolt in a out carefully.
