did you snap the bolt or strip the threads in the carrier housing..If the bolt is broken off, you should be able to drill a smaller hole in the bolt and use a "easy out" to extract it. Kinda looks like the mount for the linkage is in your way though.

if an easy out is my only way then it can be done. the linkage is not in the way if i remember correctly. ill take a better look when i get a chance. i wont mess with it till it starts to effect the chain though.

oh yeah..... why was the left one so easy to turn and the right one was not? could it have been that i tightened one and then the other instead of doing then little by little at the same time? i guess ill half to inspect it to make sure the threads arent jacked up from the bolt.

to get out screws that are stuck or stripped i use a screw extractor. It's basically a drill bit with reversed threads. Works for me...

should be able to just drill the bolt with the reversed bit. Every time i strip something, it comes right out with a reversed bit

Mine are the same way the shifter side is way harder to tighten then the brake pedel side. why is this?
Because that's the side with the chain on it and it's the side with all the strain, the other side is just aligning the carrier/axle, the shifter side is the one moving it all when you've got the chain on there.
