Both allen bolts on the torque tube to transmission coupler have gotten stripped.  I was tightening them, and going incementally.  They went to 45lbs ok, but trying to get them to 58 lbs and they started stripping (not the threaded ends, but the allen socket side).  I'm guessing I need to grind these out somehow.

1. Any tips on what kind of grinding or cutting bit is good for this?  

2. Are these bolts single use parts?  My allen socket was in firmly with no play.  They allen socket isn't worn or rounded.

I attached a picture for reference.

Thanks.
