They are all right hand (normal) thread on the swing arm, as you say, despite what the book says. I used an electric wagner paint heat gun. The heat makes a difference, but I am not that keen on torches unless it is on a bench. Those fasteners really break loose with a loud snap when you load up that breaker bar.
I used a six point 14mm impact socket on the inner fasteners after reading the "Need Help -Swing Arm Removal' thread about rounding off those bolts with a chrome socket. I used a 12 point chrome socket to remove the 30mm fasteners, but will get a 6 point impact socket to put them back on .
Not bad, but I took my time. So far so good.
