Ford AOD help needed!

I have installed a 302 motor with an AOD in my 53 truck. The two upper bolts for the tailshaft housing are used to fasten the shifter to the transmission. When attempting to remove one of these bolts the head twisted off. I would like to remove the tailshaft housing to access the broken bolt. Can I remove it without having a bunch of parts fall out of the housing?
Thanks for any help someone might be able to provide.

Ford AOD help needed

Cant help you on Tail shaft removal On AOD transmission But Have a trick I learned on Brokin Bolts Studs . I Use this a lott on Vw Exhaust Stud's <<, Notorious for Snappin off . What I do is if a Nub is Stickin out <<< Usually is ? Bolts Studs Generally snapp off leaveing a nubb raised up just above flush 1/16 of an inch is all you need . I Take a 10.8 nut And Lil high temp silicone around out side of Nut Glue it too the Nub Centerd . Lett it dry . Then spot weld center of the nut too the nub of the brokin bolt or stud . Lett cool But not completely <<< Just enough for weld too harden then twist out . <<, works great I Do this pretty regularly on Aluminum Vw heads . Even had some success with studs that are recessed a 1/16 of an inch or lil more below the surface . The heat on steel with Aluminum they tend too twist right out . <<, Better than pullin tail shaft ? But if its Broke way deep ? Guessin tail shaft removal is all your left with ? I have a manual Covers AOD Ford tranny's . I will check Again See where this post is at ? If you havent Gotten it I can look it up . Less somebody Else has better Answer . But if Anything is stickin up past Flush << as in just a Nub ? This Lil trick has worked Succesfully for me on Many Total Bummers . On many different Applications I use a Mig Welder on Aluminum it's best for touchy work ? But on Metal Parts Ive used Stick / arc even used Gas, and Coat hanger once too weld a nut on Busted Bolt . Hopefully once your over the Arghhhh of snappin it off it . Panic Attack Subsides ! You'll see the simplicity of it ! Hope this helps ? Sean

I don't think removing tail shaft housing is much different than most others.Remove spedo gear ,don't think parts will fall out

nothing will fall out but, the bolt will be trouble to remove. might be the aluminum galled up on the threads or corrosion
