So as it says. The bolt that nearest to the firewall on the drivers side was broken off about 3/8 of an inch inside the hole, what a mess. Tried the nut and weld technique about 5 times without success. So we drilled a secondary hole in the manifold and used a 7/16" header bolt for the extra head bolt hole which has survived the first test run. I'll try to post some pics later.
NOW finally!


Added bonus, my Helper "Brooke"
