I cut all of the tubes off flush on my sons manifolds, tapped them to accept bolts, and put short bolts with muffler cement on them back in place. Hasn't leaked yet.

James,

You should be able to work it out with an easy-out. Perhaps use a little heat.

I think the bolt size is technically a 14mm, but a 9/16" fine thread is only about .01" larger, and they fit good.

The shortest 9/16" fine thread my hardware store had were too long, so I cut them down to length.

Good luck,

Matt
