removing rusted exhaust studs/bolts
need to take of my exhaust manifold and i can get 11 bolts loose but 2 are rounded off(not by me), they are on the bottom row between pots 1&2 and 2&3. and bright ideas.
might need to grind them off is all else fails
grinding them off takes ages use a cold chisel and a hammer and split the nut in half dead easy
- Smack an old smaller socket onto it
- Heat it up
- Weld a nut on it
- Grind it off
- Use a nut splitter
Try one or any of the above. Old imperial sockets are useful slightly smaller than metric ones. Or just grind it off if you have space.
nut splitter, exelent, off to machine mart tommorrow
