Thanks, Docc and everyone for information and advice and images.

Hopefully Stuart Brainerd is able to extricate what's left of the bolt without destroying the threaded hole in the casting. I agree, it looks under-engineered. 

Let us know if there is room for a longer bolt there.

What I would do is , get a length of all-thread and bottom it out in the engine case and mark it where you can cut it leaving enough to install a lock washer/nut in place of the socket head capscrew . This way you will take advantage of the depth of threads in the engine case . Now when you use a stud you are pulling the threads instead of screwing the threads .

Will do, Docc.  

The suggestion about substituting a stud is not a bad idea. Mister Brainerd is pretty resourceful, I'll bring it up.
