Bluhduh I think it is dead................

Ok, so now I am totally depressed. I just pulled the head off the XT, so that I could get at the broken bolt that was in the exhaust manifold port…..well it was not a broken bolt. Sometime in the past, the threads must have stripped and the hole was filled with epoxy. I have cleaned most of the epoxy out and there is NO metal left on the head side.

Does anyone know how to fix this thing? I was considering welding, but it is super close to the head. Obviously, epoxy will not work and a new head is $550……..maybe I should just part the poor thing out.
