The 4th header bolt from the front on the drivers side is either broken or stripped. Haven't tried pulling it out yet so i could get you guys input. What should i do about this? It is in the location where the 2 bolts are close together and i am about to be doing my lt's. with stock gaskets and some copper rvt is it going to leak like a bitch? I am putting new l92s on it in about 3 weeks so that will solve the problem but this is for now. any help would be appreciated! thanks guys

getting it out should not be the problem its getting a new bolt back in and it to hold. i think you should just give me the heads you will have new ones soon lol :big_banana_Dance: you might could drill it out tap it and put a helicoil in it. i have done this to a stripped trans bolt and it holds fine now.
