Snapped bolt head off a flywheel bolt.

What do I do now???
How can I remove the bolt I ripped apart flush with the flywheel?
Does any one know any shops in the area that can get me a new flywheel for a 80' brat ??
Can I stick the whole thing back together with one bolt missing?
Thank you for any help here

You can also try backing it out with a chisel, or a left hand drill bit.

I assume you broke one of the clutch pressure plate-to-flywheel bolts, as I don't know anybody strong enough to break the flywheel-to-crank bolts. You can sometimes get lucky: remove the pressure plate, dry off your thumb, press it firmly on the broken bolt and turn it counterclockwise. If the threads were oiled, sometimes the bolt will come out this way. Really. If that doesn't work, try teasing it with a No. 00 flat screwdriver. Sometimes you can catch an edge and work it out.
If, OTOH, you used locktite, you'll have to drill it. Std. bit + EZ-out, or left-handed bit.
