Having studied the matter further and read the thread about the stripped intake bolt I am going to try the JB weld fix using some new threaded stock unless somebody has a better idea. The JB weld that I have is in the Red and Black tubes. Is there a different type that would work better? I will overcome this! Onward through the fog!
If it can't be broken I'll find a way!
I'm not lost, I'm exploring!
