    Sounds like the threads may be buggered up. Can you chase them with a tap?

    so you forced it at some point?

    Neither bolt works in that hole but both fit in the other? Yea, try to find the right thread chaser and fix that up. Maybe try a small wire brush (bottle brush type) to make sure there's not a bit of slag or something jamming the hole. I'd think you could force it in there if it were just a matter of gummed up threads, steel doesn't gall that bad usually.

    could be cross threaded could be messed up threads, either way you should see damage to the threads of the bolt, buy a tap and chase the threads and buy a new bolt
