Stripped clutch cover cap help!

The story is that when I was replacing the clutch cover last year I accidentally over tightened the cap ( I know.... a stupid mistake). So now it's almost time to insure my baby but the cap is bothering me tremendously. I already have the replacement part but I can't even attempt to turn the ratchet or else it'll just get worst. Any idea on how to tackle this? Anything advice would be much appreciated!

Perhaps a pair of vice grips would work

Seeing that it's aluminum I don't want to use vice grips because if it doesn't work the bolt will get worst haha. Anyone have any experience with the Irwin bolt-grip?

Stripped clutch cover cap help!

You replacing it right. Could you cut a slit in it and use a big flat head screwdriver?

at this point.....anything you try will make it look worse!

3 suggestions.....

1: vise grips

2: try a pipe wrench?

3: buy a cheap socket and epoxy it to cover, let it set, remove.

ps: six point sockets have a tighter fit than 12 points.........

Ill try a bolt extractor tool first and if that doesn't work definitely #3! If this doesn't get replaced soon I'll be riding with a hurt ego.

smack it with a lump hammer, break it into pieces and fit a new one correctly.

When you find stuff that doesn't work like you want them to... Hitting them hard is algo a very good option! hahahaha (not being ironical!)

Have you tried with the most typical wrench??

pull the whole engine cover off, drill a hole in the cap but not the center of it and use a screwdriver and hammer to get it loose, then buy a new one and put some anti cease on the threads when putting it on.

bolt extractor doesnt work, ive had this happen twice. the aluminum is too soft and a typical wrench or vice grips dont fit around in the small space around the nut

So how did you end up getting it off? LOL

I would also try what d1 said, if the aluminum is too soft for that then I would have to say go with the #3 idea.

You could use a socket 1 size smaller and try to beat it on with a hammer...I've done this before to striped bolts

I'd be worried about breaking the case trying to hammer a socket on

You shouldn't have to hit it hard. The case is aluminum. It should form to the socket fairly easy

Putting anti-sieze on that is a baaaad idea. It's a direct entry to the engine. Would you really want all of the copper and other stuff in anti-sieze floating around your engine internals? The only thing that is supposed to go on those threads is a little bit of grease

^ since you're removing it, you can just thoroughly clean it with brake/contact cleaner it should be fine.
