Thanks for all your help, SUCCESS. Got both nuts off tonight without ruining the sheet metal on the lights, and did not even damage the thin nuts.
After soaking the nuts in my best penetrant, pounding on them twice a day, and trying to remove them with a box end wrench and a dead blow hammer without success. I took the hood apart and laid the headlight in some soft soil to keep it from spinning. Took a 11/16 deep impact socket and a small impact wrench (230 Ft #s)and turned the wrench on. Both cams off with ease.
Thank you once again !

The thread title made me think this was going in a different direction, nice to see after reading that it is a Follow Up thread.

Thank you for the replies. I tried to get every ones name in the title put the space cut me off. Sorry The Old Hokie.
The tractor is going to be a work machine so it will not get a like new refinish. Hope to use it as my spraying tractor. Certainly will share what it looks like when complete. However; that will be a while since I am so slow.
Best Wishes.
