    Got to love the idiots of this world

    So i was workin on my truck last night (99 silverado withe 4.8 v8) I had to cut the cats out they were chokin up the motor. My manifolds had been leakin a bit so i figured it was a good time to rip those off and put in new gaskets too

    well anyways who ever the idiots that had my truck before me must of treid to do the same thing be cause 3 bolts are busted and they must of jsut said the hell with it and left it.

    There is about 1/4 in of stud thats stickin out of the head. any good idea for gettin these broken bolts befor i go and do somethign and make it worse haha
    thanks nick

    Did you try spaying them with WD40 or something like that and try turning them out with a vise grips?

    True. These guys are full of knowledge. If you do try the WD40 just be sure to let it sit on there for a few mins before trying to turn it out.

    Snap-on makes a great stud extractor, i have a set in my box at work and here in my shop, the more pressure you put the tighter they grip.

    Weld a nut on them and screw them out

    If you can get the extractor I'd do that ...if not tach weld a nut to it.....I would put the nut on and weld the center of it up, don't weld on the outside of the stud you could undercut it and make it smaller ,causing it to twist off when you try and unscrew the stud.

    ALSO,Many might disagree, but As long as you are careful and avoid getting it on the paint....one of the best things I've ever used to get a rusty bolt loose is BRAKE FLUID. PB Blaster is what I normally use but have used brake fluid many times while in a junkyard..JMO

    Heat the stud up with an oxy/accet torch to a glowing red, then touch a candle to it. The wax will wick into the threads. Let it cool completely to the touch and then twist it out. Magic.....
