Broken Bolt in a bellhousing CHEVY.

Hello guys.

I have a sbc engine that has a broken bolt in the right upper bolt hole in the bellhousing.
i was wondering what would be the best way to get it out ?

and if it would be ok too just use the other 5 bolts to bolt the transmission to the engine ?

Best regards

Same here. If it's in the car, hard to get to, and not pushing major power figures or intended for serious abuse, I'd leave it alone. If it's out of the car and/or easy to get to, I'd attack it with a center punch and then a left-handed drill bit.
