J35Z1 ENGINE, ARE EITHER ONE OF THE BOLTS HOLDING THE SERPENTINE BELT TENSIONER ON MADE WITH LEFT HANDED THREADS?

I had no problem getting the belt off and now I'm wanting to remove the tensioner but the bolt running through the idler pulley, 17mm head seems to frozen. I believe the torque is only around 55lbs. So it shouldn't take that much force to loosen it off. I just don't want to twist it off inside the block. If anyone knows, I would appreciate a bit of a hint.

The bolt holding the tensioner bearing is left threaded.
