What dremel bit do you have that will do this? Their little carbide ones I've tried never seem to last long enough for a job of this nature. The bolt is broken off below flush, so a cut off wheel won't work.

Matt - I don't know if Ed center punched it first, but he was trying to drill it in the frame to get the exhaust off so he could pull the head. Between the down tube of the frame and the header, he didn't really have a chance of drilling straight. I'm sure he now realizes he would have been better off using a bigger drill bit to remove the head and then dealing with the remaining stud afterwards, but hindsight is how we get experience. Or at least it is how I get most of mine. Looks kind of like this

Tc bits. Slow em down and use oil. Heat seems to kill them. At this point he can use a drill bit for most of it then finish with the dremel. The main point is to get gap in there so the metal has room to be moved inward off the threads. He could cheat and just drill and retap into a sae size too. Probably faster too.

Now that the engine is out and there is room to work, why not try drilling for an easy out again? Without the frame and header pipe in the way you should have a much better chance of success. Start with a punch/drift to center the hole, then drill slow.

slow and oil - will do next time I have need to use one. I was treating them like the larger ones I have for the die grinder. Guess they didn't like WOT & dry.

Exhaustboltageddon

Fosnaught Auto in North Canton succuessfully extracted my broken exhaust bolt. Price was $42.50, which seems like a fair price to me.

So you all can go back to your regularlly scheduled ADV programming. I'll see what else I can muck up during the reassembling process.

Thanks for all the ideas, I enjoy hearing people's solutions to problems.

Ed, are you using a helicoil / insert or re-using the existing threads in the head?

Haven't picked it up, but I am pretty sure there is no helicoil.

Find out tomorrow exactly what was done.

Is it me or does the Tenere in that video look like a TDM with wire wheels?

They're horrid compared to 1/2" die grinder bits. If I could find a dremel bit half as effective as the bit my dad has,I'd buy a dozen.
