Sheared my nuts off

While fitting a new transmission I just over sheared the head off the nut that connects the shifter rod to the transmission, the one that you secure with wire.

Now i've never broken anything this badly before so i'm not sure what i can do to get it out, i'd rather not be dropping the transmision agains if at all possible. Does anyone have any advice?

Also where would i get a replacement and what would i ask for?

finally is my old transmission with a broken ring and pinion worth anything to anyone? Does it have any scrap value?

Thanks.

Hey Nige44,
Never dropped a tranny in one of these cars myself, so forgive me if this a silly question, but can you get an angle on the sheared bolt for an e-z-out? I've had good luck with the e-z out and PB blaster combo.
BTW, where in Boston are you located? I've been threatening to get together for lunch with some other boston area pelican guys, maybe I'll drop you a line if it looks like it might come together...

I did the same thing on my last tranny project . I had to drill out the broken bolt. What a ***** to get at. I ended up drilling the shaft oversize and retapping it.

I'm assuming the bolt broke on installation. If so, it should be willing to come back out (as opposed to one held in place by oxidation). I would try hard to get it to turn with a punch if the surface is a little uneaven.

Maybe if i drive it hard enough it will just fall out?

Only joking.... well a little bit..

Tshabet, I live in Malden but work downtown, give me a shout when you are thinking of doing something.

Holy crap, I really thought this thread was about something completely different.
Good to hear it's only a transmission, and not something a little more personal.

I don't know what it looks like up there, but perhaps you can turn the left-overs of the bolt from the other side, where it may be sticking out (I don't know if it goes through whatever it bolts to), otherwise, try backing it out with a punch.
