    In your position, I'd PM Person A, assuming they were the first response, and tell them it's yours, what's your shipping address, etc. If no response from A in another day or two, move on to B.

    It's an Allen head bolt, because the location of the bolt made it very difficult to get a wrench on both ends. So I (temporarily) Krazy Glued a cheap Allen key into the head of the bolt, inserted the...

    Project is done. Finally.

    Started up the truck, it idled poorly for awhile - battery was disconnected so computer is relearning everything. Drove normally, perhaps a bit more power and smoother...

    We had two pop-up trailers before moving to a truck camper.

    I think I know what will get me enough space: there's a heat shield that bolts onto the outside of the exhaust manifold, and the EGR pipe runs through it. I put the shield back on before trying to...

    So no concern about heat damaging adjacent stuff? It's on the exhaust manifold, so it's something that gets hot anyway.

    As long as I can drill through, I can put a bolt and nut through to hold the EGR pipe to the manifold. It is a through hole, not a blind hole, so it doesn't matter if I damage the...

    I don't have space down in the engine bay to swing a hammer enough to break up that bolt stub. There's space to tap and center punch - it's just big enough to fit a drill.

    I was using a cordless drill - but I don't think my lack of progress in drilling was due to drill torque. I do have a corded drill, and I think it'll fit too.
