1980 911SC Broken Cylinder Head Bolt

Engine

Vehicle Information: Model: 911SC; Year: 1980; Body Type: Targa; Total Mileage: 62,000;

While doing the major engine service the serviceman found that 1 of thecylinder head bolts was broken inside the block leaving only three offour to hold that cylinder in place. He tentatively recommended thatbecause of the cost to break down the engine to the block in order toreplace it, that I leave it alone. He suggested that unless I intended torace the car (which I don't) that it will probably be OK! No guaranteesof course. I do not want to spend the money; another $3000? But I needsome advice. Right now the bill is at $1500 with the engine reinstalled.
