I had to read this a couple of times. Is it the bolts that go to the crankshaft you are talking about. If so there are a couple of things you can do. Get a little longer bolt, Drill the crankshaft out and retap it. Or drill it out and use a heli coil. If you decide to go to longer bolts just watch so when you put them in they don't go in as far as to hit the back of the pan. If you drill it out then you will have to rethread it and use a bigger bolt. The problem there is that the flywell hole is going to be too small and will have to be drilled out to the right size. If you use a heli coil then it will have to be drilled just a little then what they call a heli coil is threaded in. Then the bolt you use will be smaller than the original. I would first try with a longer bolt and see if you have enough threads to get that torque. The torque is suppose to be from 100 to 110 psi. If it is justy one or two bolts you should be able to get away with just a little longer bolt. You would still have 4 that are good.
