    My f134 exhaust manifold has one drop through bolt & nut on one side,no stud on the other side.
    It just has a bolt that tightens up through the exhaust pipe flange in to the manifold.
    Now it's stripped!!!
    Any input?
    Thanks....

    Helicoil insert, or drill and tap everything to a larger bolt size.

    Just possibly a longer bolt would still find enough thread deeper in the hole.

    Helicoil x2 you still drill and tap but it's done.

    I would hope not. Probably break some studs and have have to do more helicoils.

    It's supposed to be a stud, helicoil as suggested.
