They sell a handheld torch with replaceable tank for about $15 at walmart. It comes in REALLY handy when working on a 20 year old car.

Is it accessable enough to drill it out?

Sometimes you just have to break a bolt or tab to get something off when its rusted in place. Propane torches dont heat enough to make a difference on rusted fasteners. MAPP gas is only slightly effective.

If you tear off a tab you can attach it back before reassembly.

Depending on whether you can get on it, try tapping the wrench handle with a hammer. Just a good sharp rap. When you pull on it, the friction makes the whole thing want to twist, but the sudden impact helps break that friction.

That's also the best way I've found to remove brake rotors that have a bolt holding them on.
