Duhvidd is cool... so far.
Exclamation Need help, bottomed out one too many times transmission bolt.

My car scraped a lot when it was running, so I am pulling my motor that has a rod knocking, and putting a new one in, and ive encountered an issue, my first tranny bolt is scraped flat, and it wont thread out, it keeps loosing grip with the socket.

sonikaccord seems to have made some friends!
A bolt extractor helps:

If that fails, you can drill it out and re thread it.

I was about to post those. They will not fail I used them on my transmission mounting bolts with great success. I think I needed to use it for 4 of the bolts.
Be unique, like every other person.

+1 for the bolt extractor, Mine has saved me multiple times. Its a good investment, and a good tool to have around because this wont be the last time you'll use it. If you're in to the whole slammed herra frush stuff.

Ya save the ground scraping/sparks flying crap to the Volkswagon/Euro guys.

If you want to be lowered, do it right.
