Me and Honda bolts dislike each other...
Ok I’m partly to blame, well actually my job is because I spend a lot of my day pushing and pulling a fairly heavy part of a machine in and out. 40+ years of this and my sense of how hard I’m pulling is a bit off wack. So it’s not at all uncommon for me to snap bolts. So that said I kinda over torqued the two front upper bolts on the skid plate on my ATAS. So of course all that happened when I went to take them off is the bolt stayed and the hex wrench turned. OK. Fine, not the fist time for me and hex bolts, so (quite) a few beatings of a hammer and chisel later I broke the bolts free..
So here’s my thought on a fix for me and I’ll post when (or if) I do it.. I’d Like to just screw in small posts with holes in them and use either cotter pins or cotter hair pens through them to hold/ of course I’d have to use a spring washer too. I’m thinking of at least doing this on the two upper front bolts..
At least I can’t over tighten them and have the same issue again...
