U-joint

I broke my rear u joint this morning and the bolts broke off in yoke. Can i drill out old bolts and keep drilling through the rest of yolk so i can put a better u bolt in instead of junky little metal straps they had on there?

Really likely it will fit. If you are worried, just measure the center to center spacing of the strap bolt holes and get a u-joint type u-bolt that size.
