That should be an easy bolt to pull. Use a reversed twist bit, just make damn sure it's in the middle of that bolt. Go slow and it will come out. Don't turn that extractor to much, if it snaps in the bolt, you're toast!

I have learned from this thread that there is no way in hell I am installing my cams and springs myself.

OP, good luck man. I feel your pain as I too am one of those, whatever could go wrong does go wrong, lucky individuals. Trips to parts stores, cussing, crying, frustration. 4 hour job takes 5 days, etc..

Just stick with it and walk away when you need to. However long it takes is however long it takes. You will be happy when they are in and you get the power and sound. You will also get the pleasure of knowing you did it yourself and you have one hell of a story you can tell for the rest of your days.

alright story time, then i go drill out the son of a bitch
so i asked my dad to get me the parts needed to drill it out sense he was already in town
he returns with a titanium drill, but there not left handed because "chances are the drills already in there so tight because you broke it anyways, so you shouldnt worry about drilling it in farther" i tried explaining that the head was snapped off, which means the bolt isnt really in there tight, but hes the kind of person who never thinks hes wrong and wouldnt let me explain. So should i just go for it with this drill or go out and buy a left handed drill bit?

if you have a dremel cut off wheel you might be able to cut a slit in the bolt and use a flat head to back it out.

I'd def run the risk of cutting the area around it a little bit

By the looks of the pic he posted theres none of the bolt sticking out to notch without notching the cap along with it.

At this point I think you need to stop, have the car towed to a shop and let them finish it. I'm all for diy but I don't wanna see you tear your motor up any further.

This. I would love to see you got the bolt out and continued the install yourself but I am kinda thinking after all the hassle that bolt has given you it would be better to let someone else get the headache.

Alright hear me out, so how about I continue on with the install, and when I do get it done, drive the car up there and have them take it out for me.... Wouldn't be ok to drive for a few miles? I mean, it is help down by 4 ther journals and I'll have that one on, but just bolted down with one bolt. Bad idea or wah?

---------- Post added at 09:10 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:05 PM ----------

Nvm I think this is a bad idea

Bad idea man. I have confidence in ya bro, you can get that bolt out.

It'd probably be pretty cool to watch your cam come flying out of the hood lol

I have used Carbide bits to go through case harddened steel. A colbalt drill should work. Use several drills stepping up in size. If your going to try an easy out you don't need a ccw drill bit. You do need a centered and on axis hole large enough for a decent sized easy out though. But you have to wonder. If it is seezed in the hole tight enough to break off the bolt head, unless you make sure that issue is solved, you may break off the easy out then the only remedy is to send it to a edm shop to be burned out.

Holy shit I feel for you man

Try and jb weld a socket on it let it sit overnight it's worth a shot at this point.
The quick steel type shit cures hard if the bolt isn't super tight might work

Go to a tooling or machine shop and ask them about a chemical to do this job and make it easy. It's some kind of acid solution. It ONLY eats away and dissolves hard metals and won't hurt the aluminum head. The way it works is you put it on and it won't do anything. Then once you apply heat from a heat gun it will start to react and dosolve. It sounds crazy but I have seen this stuff in action before.

I'll try to search for it and see what I can find.

---------- Post added at 12:36 AM ---------- Previous post was at 12:23 AM ----------

Okay. The stuff is called "tap out". It is basically nitric acid. It will dosolve ferrus metals and not aluminum.

You can buy it in a kit that comes with the acid, modeling clay and a neutralizer. The clay is to form a pool/dam around the area so it will not spill into something else. Then you have to keep it fresh so every 30 or so minutes use a syringe to suck it up and apply more. Then nurtalize the area and your done. No more bolt and a fresh clean hole.

Nitric acid is very dangerous and can react to different things so I would make sure you do not get it on anything and most important, yourself. Bye bye fingers.
