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

The two bolts in question are surrounded by the gasket, so leaking should not be an issue. I'm willing to have a go at removing the bolts, and maybe helicoiling, but taking the block to a machine shop is probably not economic, given the price of a new block.

I'll let you know what transpires!
