Tranny pan bolts and tranny pan ufo

As the saying goes...

"No good deed goes unpunished"

I decided to change my tranny fluid tonight. I had order a deep tranny pan to replace the stock model (460 C6 Transmission)

Problem number 1

- Some of the bolts came out real easy. 5 did not, and the heads snapped off.

I guess I have two choices, easy out, or heli coil. Reccomendations?

Problem 2

- When I got the tranny pan off, this was sitting in the bottom of it:



Any clues? Does it belong there? Doesn't look like it goes anywhere.

It is about 1.5 inches in length.

Thanks!

Don't know what that is. I would try an easy out before Heli-coil. Then I would drill and tap if that didn't work. Westward makes a really good set of easy outs. I have a set of KD's too, they break if you just look at them funny.

left handed drill bits might make the job easier.
