Possibly you should get a local machine shop involved.
I have successfully helped an owner with the "drop method" I explained earlier, and with the Amel tool method. I think the most important ingredients in both were time and patience. Time for penetrating fluid to work and patience to keep from doing something that breaks something else.
A last resort...and I have not tried this:
A small impact driver which typically uses both bit rotation and concussive blows to power-drive screws. I would place the largest diameter blunt-end steel rod that will fit in the driver and lightly hold it around the cast iron base of the motor, while using the tool to provide downward force.
