You could try notching it and using a flat bladed screw driver but it's likely too tight for that. I dunno what to do...maybe square it off and then use a small wrench?

Good Lord, why do you need a new crankcase? Unless you can clearly see from the outside that it is cracked, I'd wonder if your mechanic isn't pulling something over on you. Usually you have to open the case before you can see damage around a bearing or something.

Or did something happen when he tried to get the cylinder bolt out?

Thanks for the "Heads up" Laughing

They should be able to drill the stud out and then put in a Heli-coil or whatever to make new threads.

Which side do you need and what year?
