The starboard side of my Traveller is starting to lift up. I am guessing to remove the center 5mm Allen bolt that goes through the middle of the sheeves, although I cannot get it to budge, to access it. Does anyone have any experience with this??

Thanks Dave

I had to replace my sheeve on both sides and really struggled to get the bolts out. Once I had them out, each was bent thus the challenge. I ended up stripping one or two of the hex bolts and used an angle grinder to square off the head of the bolt to allow me to get more torque on the bolts which eventually came out.  

Took a lot of work and was a bit scary, but just know the reason you are having difficulty getting them out is likely due to them being bent from accidental gybes or other 'crashes' from having one of the cleats unlocked during a tack (sounds like i may have experience with unlocked sheets!).
