Default 2009 rmk 700 diy motor mount bolt repair

I was able to fix my broken front left motor mount bolt. It took a while to get the broken bolt tail out of the nutplate. Took the boot off the left steering link, but still had to cut a hole in some nearby sheet metal in order to get a vice grip on the bolt. Had to break it loose from the thread locker. Pictures attached.

I bought a grade 9 bolt locally. It was 2.5" long, so I trimmed it a little. Then, in order to get it threaded back into the nutplate, I had to grind the tip into a semi-pointed feature. This was needed to line up the parts in the stackup. I was able to tighten the bolt with a 9/16" flex head ratchet wrench. Wrapped some safety wire around the wrench so that it didn't drop under the motor. Didn't need to remove the exhaust or the drive clutch.
