need to replace torque converter bolt

I pulled my c4 out and while removing the torque converter bolts I managed to round off one of the nuts. I tried everything to get that nut off, but was forced to cut the sucker off.
Does anyone know if I can replace that bolt after taking the cut one out or am I gonna be forced to buy a new torque converter?

That stud height is important... it is best for a proper replacement.

Can the stud be re-threaded - threads cleaned up?

Or perhaps under sized re-threaded after it is out of the car?

I'll take a pic of it later today and post it, so you can get a good idea of what im dealing with. Im not sure how i'm gonna get the stud out as it was cut along with the nut. The stud will definitely have to be replaced.

help??

what you need is a set of easy outs drill a small hole in the center of the broken stud/bolt whatever. then insert the easy out into this hole then turn it right out of there. no tool box should be without these they pay for themselves the first time you use one. just make sure it's big enought to handle the torque in the application your using.

Hi Circusboy.

the original post is about a Ford torque converter that has studs on the converter.. there is no bolt to remove , I think you mis understand the post.
