Question 8hp Craftsman chipper shredder

I also have 8hp Craftsman chipper shredder. I just went to use it and the main bolt that holds the fly wheel on sheered off. There was no key found and the bolt will not come out from the center of the flywheel. Is the center of the flywheel threaded? Mine has some vibration but I am thinking the flywheel was loose and finally broke.
Any help you can give me about removing the bolt would be great.

Wow, never saw a flywheel bolt break off. Try drilling it out with a left twist drill bit.
