Re: How to remove a broken easy out???
Go find an older welder , and ask him if he can burn it out . Make sure to tell them it's in an aluminum head , this aluminum is soft but will stand the heat . I just did the same thing yesterday with a Snap-On tap , high speed steel no less . 8x1.25 tap broke off 1/4" inside the hole , almost into the bottom . Found out part of the original bolt was still in there, and had the tap wedged tight . Also broke off a punch in there as well , just fired up the torch and melted the whole mess then picked out the slag bit by bit . This was on the tcase mounting holes , had to heli-coil it to make it work . No big deal , but took an extra hour to fix it . Anti-seize rules , use it liberally.....
