Overtightened carb bolt broken - repairable?

While reassembling my mini tiller I overtightened the bolt that runs through the air filter housing, through the carb to the engine and it broke off. Can this be repaired? It has two and one is fairly tight but I imagine it might leak fuel if I can't repair or replace the second bolt.

Echo engine, walbro carb.

I believe the bolt is removed by taking off the plastic intake mount and sliding the bolt out from the backside.

You didn't mention what brand tiller you have but it most likely has a Tecumseh engine. On the engine you will have ID #'s. Post back with these and we can better help you out.

I removed the plastic intake and the broken off piece twisted right out.

Thanks.

Great! To Puey61's credit, I remembered what engine this has from previous questions about it from the author. My memory usually stinks, lol.
