Victor,

I painted my valve cover and when I went to reinstal it (with a new gasket) I was tightning the nuts to 15 lbs/ft and one of the bolts broke. What the fuck can I do??? The rest are on fine.

Thanks,
bo

manual don't say jack, but, this is my advice...

carefully protect area from shavings... take a dremel tool (or regular drill with a dremel wheel) and cut grooves in the top part of the bolt. The idea being is that you can then remove the bolt with a flat-head screwdriver (or make an X and use a philips head).

That's my best advice... I had to do something similar for a worn down security bolt (you screw on but not off)
