SUCCESS!! Removed broken head bolt tap

Postby staninlowerAL » Tue Mar 01, 2016 7:11 pm

SUCCESS!! :D Here's the problem: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=91806 And here's what I used to get it out, a small pointed chisel/hammer and angled needle nose pliers. Fortunately it was near the top of the hole and I backed it a couple of turns with the chisel and hammer then the pliers could catch it and turn it on out. Thanks to everyone who contributed their ideas. I'm just glad it's done. Stan

Thanks for all the kind words. Yes it is a relief to get past this point. I hope to hear it run for the first time this weekend a LA Cubfest. Stan
