That someone should be a skilled welder with the proper electrodes and know-how. There are electrodes made specifically for that purpose, and it takes a steady hand on 1/4" bolts. Been there, done that.

My neighbor once put his derby cover back on so tight that he warped it. What happened was, he tightened the first bolt all the way down instead of doing them all evenly. In his favor, they weren't using those stupid torx heads yet, so I was able to remove the allen heads without breaking any of them.
Had another derby cover laying around, so I put that one on. No saving his old one.
Good luck, and take it easy next time.

I am with 0maha you are already in a little over your head. I wouldn’t continue at this point, I would take it in and get it done or you will keep digging a hole and have the quintessential basket case in the works,
I also don’t want to be dick, but want to give some honest advise.
not knowing you can’t get to the derby cover from the back and not already having E-Z outs is a big tell.
In ny tool box I have a couple different types and pray I never use them....on my stuff anyway....

Hey paintslinger and ragtop hold on know! Have you ever made a mistake...are you the great pro's. I made a mistake didn't see Inch lbs. looked at it to quickly. i've done quite a bit of work on motorcycles mostly all top end work no bottom and work no transmission work I work on cars I'm pretty good with tools are usually never use a torque wrench I've use tools so much I really don't need to and for some strange reason I decided to use a torque wrench on this and didn't recognize foot pounds over inch pounds, so please get off my case I really don't need to see a professional I will get them out on my own and you guys really need to lighten up. I also have a sportster a XL 1200 2002, that I've change ignition ( Dynatek ), did the stage one rebuilt the carburetor, up graded plug wires, voltage regular , I have cams that I will install come summer months, change all fluids,Took the liner out of the gas tank, and on my Dyna I replaced front and rear shocks, hard wired my phone, PV1, and GPS. Not talking about maintaining my boats 150 Merc, replaced 2 car engines.......get the picture, so you guys telling me I need to take it to a pro is uncalled for I take that as an insult. I bought all new drill bits and Dremel bits ( all colbalt and titanium). Just thought I'd get some good quality opinions ..... and I did. Except for a few negatives.

I will gladly retract, definitely can’t judge experience from a post in a forum, I could read your frustration though!

My father is a retired mechanic after 40 years working on cars for a living, and still works on them for friends, family, and hobby. And he uses a torque wrench. But hey - maybe your shade-tree experience trumps a career mechanic...

I hope you get your bolt out. Best of luck in the future!
