track bar mount loose

Recommended Posts

Was just checking out my handy work and found the track bar mount loose on the axle that I just redid the swing arm pin.  I grabbed a wench and tightened up three of the four nuts as it appears one seems to be broken off.  Just went through my TS442 and couldn't find anything.  

What do I need to do to replace the bolt/stud?  

if it is a stud can I extract it and replace?  

or not worry about it and just make sure the bracket stays tight?

Well since nobody knew the answer to my question, I answered it myself.  

It has 3/4 course thread studs with 3/4 fine on the exposed side.

My repair consisted of drilling a pilot than attempting to extract with easy out.  On closer inspection there was actually 3 that were broken.  I ended up pulling the side cover off since one of the broken bolts caught on the drill and spun in.  

I replaced with 3/4 grade 8 bolts 2 1/2 long with harden washers and red locktite.
