NV3550 Shift Tower Bolt Size?? Also stripped :( Please Help!

Im in a bit of a pickle here:

I changed the clutch about a month ago and removed the whole shift tower at the time by removing the 4 bolts (as compared to the other method). They were stripped so I went to the stealership and they wanted $17 for the 4 bolts :O So i decided to grind slots in the old bolts and use a flat head to screw them back on ;D

Anyways...Now the slots are too corroded to unscrew (for fluid change) and I made a noob mistake by already draining the fluid -.- I could use the fill plug but my main concern is getting these bolts off and replacing them.

So my questions are:

1. Does anyone know the bolt size for these? So I can pick some up from somewhere else, heres link to bolts im talking about (part 85).

2.Any ideas other than hammering a socket on em' to get these stripped bolts off? :P


I hope you wise jeepers out there can help me out!! I could use the fill plug but my main issue if getting these bolts off and replacing them

Penetrating oil for a day or two. You can drill a hole thru the center of it, that usually breaks its back. You'll still need to get a bite on it afterwards tho. You can also try a reverse cut drill bit, sometimes you get lucky and it will back the bolt out while ur drilling it.

You'll still probably spend more then $17 on equipment taking these bolts out

I looked in my parts manual and it shows p/n 4741 144, but no thread info. Searching "jeep bolt 4741144" in google I saw it for sale for under $2 each, but not at any site I've ever used. Sorry dude, I tried.
Can you take one out and take it to a hardware store and find a nut that fits it and then the matching bolt?
