    Hopefully you can get at the broken bolt without having to pull the entire engine out.

    I have the remains of the old bolt, and new bolts are coming. I may be able to estimate how much if any of the bolt may be protruding.

    I may have to use some form of 'easy out' to get the remains out if its recessed. Failing that, drill into it, tap and helicoil hole, I really hope it doesn't go down that route. We shall see.

    I have had success just drilling out the middle of the bolt, starting small and getting bigger until you can unpeel what's left from the threads without needing a re-tap or helicoil. But that's in iron and I don't think you would find it that easy in aluminum.

    Comparisons of the broken sump bolt and a new one.
    Yes all the new bolts arrive today, along with new gasket, and bottom pulley bolt.

    Running Trans-Am In-imag7539.jpg

    So I wonder if any of the bolt is sticking out of the block to make easy extraction. Its still looking promising, but may have broken flush.

    My plan at the moment is to keep any eye on oil, its about half way up the drip stick at the moment. May find it could get to 1/4 way, any not move futher as its low enough to not come over the edge of the sump.

    Went to a car show today, no big hills, and no smell of oil. So I dont think any leaked out of the back of the sump.

    Only the two at the back are that long. The bottom of my engine is flat(without sump) So the rear bolts need to be longer to get through the box part of the sump.
