PostSubject: Exhaust manifold bolt fix   Mon Jan 26, 2009 5:50 am

Has anyone tried to weld a washer to what is left of a broken exhaust manifold bolt? Does not seem to difficult.

I am going to give it a try come spring to see if I can get one out on the rear pass side.

Try welding a nut instead. That way you can put a wrench on it. Jim's actually gotten pretty good at it!

Try a pair of vice grips first. I pulled the exhaust manifold on one car to replace the rear stud only to find it came out easy. On the ohter hand all the other bolts broke. AS Bill said weld a nut on the stud. You can put a large washer behind the nut to avoid getting any splatter on the head. If you take apart an old hard drive from a PC you can get some nice super stong magnets. I use 'em to hold the nut in place.

Great idea Jim

My method is a reverse drill bit and heat, if the bolt is broken flush. If there is a "stud" heat, and vice grips have always worked. Of course the only time I have had to do this is with my engine out or on with the head off.

That's how we got both side rear bolts out of my grey 9c1. Worked quite well.
