I removed my cylinder head last night.

While taking off the exhaust manifold, one bolt literally fell out. I put the socket on it and it popped off.

here's a pic of the broken bolt:

What would be the best way of tackling this?
Drill and rethread? or try an easy out.

You are going to need torches to get that out. If it were me, I would drop it off at the local machine shop as I have had no luck with easy outs.

You probably need a set or borken wrenches to get out that borken bolt.

thats what I didn't want to do. But I suppose the 15 20 bucks would be cheaper then snapping the easy out and have the shop remove it.

Borked tools are needed for Borked bolts.

I snapped 2 on my bike when one of the exhaust studs wouldn't come out and snapped. Got really good with a small carbide dremel tip. Took about 2 hours each time to get them out.

It's always a good idea to have the heads resurfaced when doing the head gaskets.

Thanks funny...

The machinist said he didn't need to resurface them. Check and said they are within spec.

As the owner of a metal fab / welding shop, here's an ol' timer's trick for broken bolts. Get a nut no larger than the broken bolt and place it over the broken bolt. It's OK if the bolt broke off flush or slightly below the surface. Now, weld the inside of the nut to the broken bolt and remove the bolt while it's still hot.

Works more often than not. Wink
