I have a 2000 International 444E The belt broke due to the Idler pulley had froze up. I bought a new pulley and went to install it and the bolt will not tighten. The old one was just resting there when I removed it. I'm thinking the thread wholes are stripped out. Is there a easy work around fix? There is not enough room to get in there with a drill and use a Helicoil re thread kit. (Pulley is on left lower side right above water filter).
