Well if you got a new cylinder, find a grinder and grind the heads of the bolts off and toss the cylinder in the trash.

Whats the new part look like?

If its like the other drums Ive worked on, the two bolts go through the sheet metal backing and the thread is in the cylinder- the part your about to replace...

If the bolt HEX (the part the wrench goes on) is ROUNDED, then cutting the bolt head off will work as enough of the threaded portion of the bolt will remaing to allow you to grip it (presoaked with PB Blaster NOT WD40 first) to unscrew them. If the threaded portion of the bolts are actually STRIPPED, you have a larger problem.

I used Vise grips, and held a torch there for about 5 minutes, and i damaged the bolt worse, I have no grinder, so I'm going to try to chisel off the bolt heads, then pull out the old cylinder.
