Belly Pan Bolt

I was trying to tighten down the belly pan tonight and one of the bolts is just spinning inside of the frame. It feels like the nut on the inside is just spinning.. Any tricks to fix this, or am I going to have to drill it out and weld a new nut to the frame?

Thanks,
G1

The nutsert? Yeah you'll have to remove and weld in a new one. People really over tighten those things though the true torque should be 50lbs most folk turn and turn until they can't anymore.
