Getting good photos is a real pain, trying to work around the front tire and such but I did my best.

Chase,

Is that bolt steel or aluminum ?

Have you tried heating up the bolt housing, then touching the bolt with a piece of ice?

Sometimes it will break the bond between the case & the bolt.

But it looks like you'll have to have a handle welded on to it to fix it.

I did heat up the little pipe/spigot the bolt threads into with a propane torch and didn't have any luck. I'm a bit nervous about trying the oxy/acetylene torch on it...
I'd like to try grinding down the flange area of the bolt a little more, one to square it up more and two to try and get the crush washer out. That might release enough tension to get it out. Next step is a welder, trying to find a 110v welder to borrow because my 220 plug isn't in a convenient spot.

It looks like that's a tough location. Now that you have a flat cut in it you might be able to use one of those hammer impact drivers. Back in the day it was a lifesaver on case screws that were phillips. Doubt you have great access to get at it there.

If I dropped the front end there would be all kinds of access, just don't want to if I can help it.

Bring that thing by, we'll have it out in 5 minutes.

I see no issue with getting that sleeve dark red with a torch. You're going to drain the oil after you get it out anyway, so a little burnt oil won't be an issue. Find an old socket that doesn't quite fit over what's left of that bolt head and hammer it on before you start. Put some quick heat to the sleeve and it should break free.
