Subject: FTE Pre61 - broken bolt

I've just discovered that the head is broken off of one of the bolts on my
generator. I want to remove the generator and get the broken piece out, but
have never done this before. I know there is a tool for extracting broken
bolts like this, but can't think of what its called. Can anyone give me
some advice?

It's called an easy out. Basicly it's a drill bit that has the
threads going the other way and they have a steep incline. The bit is
also tapered like a cone. You drill a hole in the broken bolt, then
put the easy out in your drill (variable speed is best) throw the
drill in reverse and stick the easy out in the hole and slowly turn it
counter clockwise.

Jack,
an easy out is a good tool, but be aware of one thing: I had a broken head
bolt on my flathead that was in the block deck. I drilled it out and put in an
easy-out. I applied too much force to the easy-out and snap! It broke off into
the block. You cannot drill through one of these things, as I found out. I
couldn't find a machine shop that would touch it, so I ended up taking a
chance and removing it myself, with a very high risk of messing things up even
more. Big bolts like a head bolt or alternator bolt are usually pretty
stubborn about coming out easily. If it doesn't come out with just a little
pressure from a wrench, I would take i to a machine shop and let them deal
with it. I wouldn't want anyone to have to go through what I did after I broke
one of these. I still use them though, just a lot more carefully.
