Stripped frame nut

I have an old Noma 10/27 snowblower and need advice on mounted frame nuts. There are two bolts that you need to unscrew in order to open machine up to replace the auger or drive belts. One of the bolts have stripped the frame nut so now I have to spend a lot of time trying to hold a nut and screw in the bolt. Of course it would be beside the tension pulley so there is only enough room for 1 finger and the nut will fall many times and you have to keep on trying. I know that I could weld a nut there and be done with it but I have know way to take snowblower to a shop to have done. Also the original frame nuts aren't really nuts it like a hedge that had threads in it. Is there some sort of clip on nut or something that I can purchase and put there?
