Angry How do you remove a broken easy out??

My step son has a mildly built up 302 in his 73 Bronco. The oil presure sender located low on the front of the block near the fuel pump broke off. He used an "easy out" type of tool to try to remove it and it broke off! I have a feeling it was an imported tool, not the real thing, made in the USA. Anyway what is the next step?? He is thinking of having to take out the engine and scrap the block, but there has to be a better way. Any sugestions?? He is a very competant mechanic, has built several engines and has his own Mobile Mechanic buisness that is very successful. Any help would be very much appreciated!

if you take a center punch and beat on it it will shatter because it is so hard. the only problem with that is all the little pieces will end up in the oil and thyrougout the mottor. i do this all the time with taps that get broke off if a hole.

the last post is probably the best way , but you might try a carbide bit, it may drill it but most likely would chip the bit because of the uneveness of the easy out.

Thanks for the responses, a check of the engine and oil filter shows metal pieces, so he is going to send a spare block to the machine shop and rebuild it with some of this engines parts (only has about 10,000 miles on it) and new rings and bearings. Thanks again.

Not so easy-out

I have removed them by very careful use of an oxy-acetylene torch. I even got a 1/4" bolt with broken tool inside removed. Since your situation will be 1/4 NPT, there will be lots of room for working.

Even good US made "Easy" outs (the world's most ironically named tool) will break. If the screwed piece broke off when it was unscrewed, then it is extremely unlikely an easy out will then take it out.
