Rounded bolt on thermostat housing

Recommended Posts

Hey guys this past summer I had my thermostat crap out and I just had taken it out and ran it with no thermostat so now it's winter and I need heat it gets cold here in CT... I went to take the bolts out and snapped one rhe other one is rounded off and none of the sockets that are made for grip doesn't work but I was wondering if anyone had any ideas for me! Maybe jb weld would work or another sealant

time to buy a left handed drill bit.

and drill it out.


or just pull the water pump and work on it.


or, go to a parts yard and buy another t-stat housing / pipe,

and replace the water pump.


or just swap out the engine.


all good solutions,

or not.
