:ditto: No broken bolts are fun. Some you win, some not. Times you can seperate the parts and enough sticks out to grab with other tools. This where the Bull gears bolt to the axle ends?  Usually allen head bolts? OR, is this the main four bolt mounts below on inside of bull case to frame?  Those are all loose from inside and can be gotten by removing the bull case covers.

yeah its the for bolts that got through the frame into the case . took the gear cover off to see if bolt threads went thru. not on ths one. ill get it done sooner or later. maybe some pics later on. thanks bill

Good to hear you worked it out, I would have been up a creek.  Side question for you.  What type of welding do you do?  I've been looking into trying to learn for home repair and projects and from what I'm finding out, it looks like stick welding is the most versatile.  I also know it is not the easiest to learn though.
