Just snapped off one of my fancy chromed Mopar emblem bolts when I was putting it in the valvecover. Damned offy covers aren't quite big enough for a socket or a wrench, and it bent over just far enough to snap the damned thing flush with the head. Pain in my ass. I got the little stumpy guy out, but now I'm going to have mis-matched bolts because these things are eighty bucks for the set and not available individually...rrggghhhh...I think the neighbors are upset that I swore so loudly in the driveway...

Can't be as bad as when I was doing the timing belt on my miata. Who ever had the valve cover off prior to me over torqued them. I snaped 3 getting them off, and they used stainless pos metal bolts. He must have use pound/per square inch, car calls for neuton meeter's...

I sure know the feeling!
