Last year when I had to replace the heads on my car svt slobra and I had a hell of a time trying to get the ****in crank bolt in because one of the previous 8 owners messed with it and stripped some threads out. Well today I went to replace the leaking front main (yeah the one thing I overlooked when I had everything apart) and guess what? That issue got amplified. Even with a brand new ARP bolt I couldn't get it to grab. It just wouldn't do it. Finally after decreasing the washer size dramatically I got it to grab. Problem is the washer that allowed the bolt to grab was so thin that it warped under load. I don't trust it. So pretty much I'm kinda ****ed. The amount of useable threads left is so minimal that it's just not safe. Shoulda lit the match awhile ago. This car keeps on burning my pockets. Time for more sitting, season probably just ended early for me. O well.
