I got all the torque converter bolts back in except one...somehow it got started wrong and I sheered the head off....what ever do I do now? Any ideas? I was trying to use a easy out but broke the tip off inside the stud...getting worse all the time?? Any help would be appreciated. I imagine I am going to have to drill the hole bigger and rethread.
Those easy outs are usually hardened so that really sucks.....you can either use a TIG welder and weld on a nut or try to freeze and break it up in the hole.
