Sounds good
Be careful loosening or tightening those down. Use plenty of oil, low torque to remove and work them in and out a quarter turn at a time so the bolt doesn’t get too hot.
To install They require a flat and lock washer or they won’t seat and you’ll break the bolt. I used a tap and plenty of oil to clean up the threads but you can’t cut very far. Then use permatex antiseize on bolt threads.
misterclean59 and retro like this.

Yeah I broke a bolt.... I sprayed a bunch of free in it and let it sit for a while but I put my ratchet on it and tried to turn it just a bit and it snapped. I can almost guarantee that it’s never been removed. I’m going to try to oil the other two up better and try to get them out without breaking them then hit the broken one out with a screwdriver with a screwdriver and hammer.

Those tiny bolts are easy to break—here’s how to remove.
remove the pipe and take to a machinist.

You have to drill it out and tap the threads. You ever use tap and die? It’s simple work if you’ve done it before but problem is those are short pieces welded to the pipe

Drill with cobalt bits—start really small. Smaller than a pencil lead. Start dead in the middle of the bolt. Stake with a center punch if you can. Your can try to use an easy out but I wouldn’t try it—break the easy out and you’ll def need a machinist.

Use the right tap i just did mine i can remember what size

I know it sounds lazy, and it is but I don’t feel like messing with it too much. I’m going to give it a little tap from the welder and leave it to the next person to fix it. If it’s not rattling then there is no reason for the buyer to look. Probably not going to sell it for a few years and I don’t mind it being welded.

Thanks for telling me the proper way
