Of course one of the water neck bolts snapped today when I was putting a better gasket on. How the hell would I get a small stud like that out? I tried vice grips but they arent working. I should've replaced those since they probably have seen heat so many times it weakened them
You can use an EZ out kit to extract the bolt, I have had to do that a few times on other projects. Got a cheap set at Harbor Freight and worked like a charm. Or if you have some of the bolt with threads still sticking out of the engine, put a nut on it, then do a couple tack welds on the center of the nut so that it is secured, then use a socket to remove the broken bolt. Had to do that on a broken exhaust manifold stud. Good luck.

You're one lucky guy!
+1 on the Vintageman way if the bolt is in iron.
If you don't have a welding machine, and the stud is high enough, you could use 2 thin bolts (or grind 2 bolts), where the second is bolted to the first, and use both to loose it.
Penetrating oil + use a dremel to cut a groove on the top to use a flat screwdriver is another one.

Good luck!

Welding a nut to it would certainly work but I don't have a welder or know how to weld. The stud is in there real tight, would jb weld work with a nut? I doubt it. Either I will have to buy a welder or get it towed to a mechanic. This car is satan himself
I found one for rent from Home Depot now I just have to practice weld some random stuff
Its not hard at all to make a few tack welds, you can definitely do it. Get a small piece of sheet metal from home depot, cut a couple strips off to practice on, and have at it. I practiced for about and hour or so and I can make decent plug welds. Good luck, let us know how it goes.

just make sure you don't blind yourself.

Got that damn bastard out on the 3rd weld, now I just have to find some good top grade bolts to throw in there with lots of anti seize. Thanks for the great advice guys, all the idiots at the "car repair stores" kept telling me to drill and tap the stud or "use an EZ out" which is just the most moronic thing I've ever heard. Dumb kids my age don't understand this isn't a crappy honda civic where the car is a worthless hunk of aluminum, because they weren't raised right. I spent $50 to rent a welder and got that damn stud out compared to breaking countless "EZ outs". Big Grin
Great job, congratulations.
