    Header Bolt Stripped...

    Here it is. I am the loser who very likely stripped the head putting the header bolt into it. Yes, the wording it correct, believe the head is stripped, not the bolt. Here's the quick version. Installing my lth I put the bolt in, and it wasn't very difficult, so I kept going. I noticed it getting difficult quickly so I stopped. Now I've got a half bolt into the head and can't decide what to do. Anyone have any suggestions? I know it leaks, I tried

    Back it out, Take a look at the bolt and see if the threads are iffy. Also get some canned air and spray out the hole to ensure its clean and good to go. Then pick up a tap/die, and try cleaning up the threads in the hole and also the bolt. Might want to purchase a new bolt while your at it.
