Default breather bolts

Well , I was gonna pull off my S & S carb of my 96 xl 1200 and 1 of the breather bolts that bolts in the head broke . The other one is very tight and I am afraid its gonna break to . So now I need to get 2 breather bolts and washers . I may have to drill and tap for heli-coil not sure yet . any suggestions

PB Blaster is your friend. Hose it down and let it sit overnight, then spray it again 10 minutes or so before you wrench on it.
