    I just broke the bolt that bolts the NP203 adapter plate to the cross member. If you have had this happen, I need advice. Is it time for a new adapter plate, or can I have the broken bolt extracted. It's a grade 8 bolt, so drilling is going to be a challenge.

    I let soak in some PB blaster (like WD-40 only better)
    drilled a hole, heated it up with a torch, and used a easy-out and it came right out

    THanks for the tip. I may just try that. Now the other bolt is stuck and I can't turn it (tHe head is too small). What I would give for a torch!

    Thanks again.
