Default Head gasket repair

I am replacing the head gaskets on my 1992 Mustang LX 5.0. I am trying to remove the lower power steering pump bolt. One end appears to thread into the head, the other end that goes through the bracket has a nut. Anyone have any idea how to get this long bolt out, since there seems to be no way to get it out. Thanks in advance for any help

I put 2 nuts on the bolt tighten them against each other then take the bolt out some times it work some times it dont.
Just another turbocharged Street Mustang, yes its fast. when it runs. But never fast enough

use some good pliers on the NON THREADED portion of the bolt...if the double nut idea doesn't work.
