    Help Please- Valve Cover Replacement with sheared Bolt Hole in Head

    Everything was going smothly when relplacing my Valve Cover Gasket on my 328. Got all the bolts off replaced the valve cover gasket and was about to put it back together when I discovered that I must have sheared the bolt hole for the one Valve Cover Bolts when taking it off. This is the one bolt next to the far spark plug hole (see Pic). Good news is I found both pieces of the broken bolt hole so no pieces are left floating around. Question is what can I do short of replacing the cylinder head? Any sugjestions would be greatly appreciated.
