    ok i have a b18c1 and the driverside mounting point where the 3 holes are for the bolts are screwed up. the threds are destroyed from a accident. Does anyone have any ideas on how i can fix this? NO JB weld, i tried that stuff already and well i drove home with my engine hanging by 1 bolt. also if i retap it do i have to go to a bigger bolt size? and would those bolts fit threw the braket? where would i get these bolts that are the right grade? can anyone help me?|

    THANKS

    I can't visualize the exact piece your talking about but im thinking a tap and die set should do the trick.
