-a short 90* special drill may work to heli~coil...i use a milwaukee just for this 'stuff'
-tear off the head if the frames backbone restricts drill use...leaking vehicles for me iznt an option IMO
-JB weld has never worked for me, but a good biker buddy used it successfully on a chevy s.b. v8 starter bolt[1 of the 2 mounting bolts]...prolly 5 yr.s now, its held
-thats a good 25lb. starter, id bet...amazes me anyway
-them dam 6mm threads have ALWAYS stripped 'be prepared'
