Hi, My name is ***** ***** for the delay.

I will do my best to assist you

this would depend on the amount of money you want to spend,it would be much cheaper to fix your heads,,

though,you may concider having a machine shop to look at your broken bolt,they may have an idea of how to remove the bolt and fix the threads without removing the heads

thanks
