83 Aspencade Rotor Bolt Issue

Post by PRACTIKALGUY » Mon May 13, 2013 12:48 am

My 83 Aspencade has an issue. The rotor bolt has loosened and punched out the cap. The real problem is that the bolt will neither tighten nor come out. It just spins and won't tighten in the shaft. Has anyone had this issue before? Thanks.

i would definately try to fix that. could lead to catastrophic failure. try to place something behind the bolt to pry it out as you turn it. or pull on it with vicegrips or pliers or something. otherwise it's an engine out job.
