how much of the bolt is protruding? any of it?
if you have any showing, hit it with pb blaster and crank it out with one of these.

If you post it in the proper mechanical section instead of General Chat, it'll get better visibility and a quicker response.

Sorry bud.. sometimes there isn't someone logged on and quick with the resolution.

Being sarcastic won't help though.

no it wasnt a knock against anybody on here, i just know that Ive bragged several times to my friends about the fast replys from this site when a problem comes up. So sometimes Im shocked when a post goes untouched and i was alittle ticked after snapping the both off.
But no biggy though, sarcastic humor is usually how i talk though and its not to offend any of you guys. but we can lock this one up,I used some channel locks to twist the screw out and found another 1/2" bolt to replace it and she was as good as new.
