[ROVERNET - UK] Rear calipers ---stuck!!!!!

After just about killing myself dropping the differential out for a rebuild 
('70 3500S), I have been unable to loosen the hinge pin assemblies to remove 
the rear calipers from the differential.  The large nuts/caps are frozen (at 
the other end, the smaller caps came out easily).  I've just about stripped 
the heads, even with a tight spanner, trying to get them free.  I know the 
dam things are threaded from the 'exploded' diagram in my parts and repair 
manuals.  Any chance these things are reverse threaded.

Any help would be appreciated.
