I Stripped a 12 pt Flywheel bolt-HELP!
The last one...
This is a 1983 300d non-turbo. I'm sick of messing around with the automatic transmission so I'm installing my 4-speed.
I got all the flywheel bolts out except for the last one. It rounded off.
Before you get all excited, I've tried vice grips, pipe wrenches and sockets that grip tighter the more you turn.
I thought I had read somewhere that if I cut/grind off the head of the bolt, it will relieve the tension and can be removed much easier.
Has anyone else heard of that? There should be enough room to get a bite on what's left of the bolt that was coming through the flywheel and flexplate.
