Follower Screw & Locknut Issue

During a valve adjustment I came across a screw that is seized inside of a locknut for my follower (rocker arm). I'm really not trying to replace my follower. Does anyone have any ideas. I'm currently letting it soak overnight with some penetrating oil to hopefully help break up any schmutz in it. Please help!

I'd try impact screw driver to break it lose. Just go very light on it.

Try first heating it up with a torch. Seems that someone may have used lock tight to secure it.

For future reference for anyone heat works amazing. Used a small cheap $20 chef's butane torch and it worked so well.
