Broken Bolt Again

Hi,

I'm still trying to get the broken bolt out of my engine. I tried drilling it and using a bolt extractor tool. It just will not move. I took the same bolt out of another engine I have. It was not easy to get got. The picture is of the bolt I took out. Most of the treads are gone. Dose anyone know what is going on here?

Judging from the amount of force it took I don't thick the broken bolt is coming out.

Thanks, Chris.

Looks like you will need to split the case to get it out and re-tap it. It must be in there or you will leak oil like a faucet.

In fact, I know that bolt very well. You cannot drill it out and extract it like suggested before. The case must be split to get to the threaded part. As you can see from the picture of the bolt, it goes in quite far. The part that needs to be drilled is on the other case half. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

Did you remove the oil sump plate? Your broken bolt is the one that passes thru the "eyebolt" that retains the plate. The side tension will make the bolt difficult to turn. HTH
