Freeing stainless bolts corroded in aluminium

Posted: 13 Jun 2013 - By: Brian Day
Hi all
I am trying to service a Lofrans Royal windlass and the bolts that hold the chain stripper are not undoing
I don't want to use too much force
there is a fair amount of salt caked around the ali parts but some of the white might be an aluminium salt of some sort - aluminium chloride?

is there a chemical that dissolves it?
