PostSubject: Know Any Mobile Welders?   Sat Aug 17, 2013 4:59 pm

I'm sick of these broken bullshit exhaust manifold bolts in my cylinder head.  I'm just making a mess trying to implement the "weld a nut to the stump" trick.  They are broken below the surface of the head.  I'm looking at all of my options, and someone on another board suggested a mobile welder.  You guys know of one?

I don't want to pull the head, but that;s the next step if my pathetic welding attempts don't work out.

I have never had any luck with the weld on trick. I do the tried and true center punch, drill it out a size at a time and then an easy out,
Just did one on the 96 engine, had to chase the threads with a tap. Make sure you measure bolt depth, drilling too deep can break into the water jacket.

I've considered that method, or a left-hand drill bit. But I'd need to buy a right-angle drill, unless I pull the inner fender, maybe then I'd have a straight shot. The welding method looks so friggin' nice in Youtube videos and boojum's thread. Just whiz bang and you are done...

The thought crossed my mind when I saw them posted. But I am on a shoestring and don't have the money to buy them and then take them to a machine shop. I'd also like to avoid pulling two heads and getting the motor that far apart if possible. The car has already been down for too long.

Mark the bit so you know when to stop! I saw a video of a guy go right through a block for a WP bolt, it chugged like a steam train after...

They actually sell a small ring with a set screw you can attach to a drill as a stop. I have one in the tool box. Never fails.
That's how they ruined a head on Paul's stepdad's caddy lt1.
