Re: Advice on removing snapped s/s bolts from alu block

Almost impossible?

But there might workarounds. Depending on the casting shape you might be able to mill (or dremel) a flat for a nut and drill out the offending bolt. You could epoxy fill any holes to the inside. You will need to drill it out anyway. You could try helicoils (sp?) and larger bolts too.

Have fun.
