Long Bolt Holding Muffler Fell Out - Stripped...

My old Tecumseh 10HP started fine this morning but the vibrations made one of the long bolts holding the muffler assembly fell out. It is stripped so I need to find a way to secure it - or maybe there is a long bolt with a bit bigger thread out there...

As long as itís not broke off you can put a heliciol in, Iím waiting on a kit for a stripped spark plug hole so Iím doing the same.

Sno-Tek Modded, 15"X-Track tires (Now has same X-Track tires but 13"x4" for better fit), 254cc engine LED light and hand warmers.
Snapper 6/22 sold but not forgotten. Was my first.
Ariens ST1027LE workhorse and going strong.
New 2017 Ariens Deluxe completely rebuilt after losing a fight with a forklift.

That's an insert you need to tap the hole in first for, correct? Any idea what size might I need?

Are you using the strip of metal that keeps the bolts from turning, Tecumseh part number 31588?

Rather than Mess with Threads, I just use a Screw in Type Muffler. Sometimes have to Mod the Air box.
