    I think the real solution here is N+1.

    Bring another bike for kid towing duties.

    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...

    I hate this fucking project...

    4.5 hours later, removed stripped bolt by grinding a notch into the ear of that EGR mount on the exhaust manifold, and cutting into the bolt. Went through a couple...

    Was in Costco this morning, no more Spy goggles, they're moving in spring and summer recreation stuff (kayaks, coolers). They did still have Bolle helmets and "small fit" Bolle goggles, which are...

    I'm going to try drilling some more this afternoon, and if I don't get anywhere, will go see about the torch.

    On the new truck search: I spent some time researching and reading up on Ford forums....

    Have you done this with success?

    I have no experience with the OA torch, but neighbor does, so I'd ask him to do it, if it is really that quick and easy.

    For those saying it's a pathway to...

    You could mount an externally routed dropper post for the trip, which would let you swap to a rigid post when you needed it.

    In store in Reno is where I bought mine. I can pick up some for you if you want.

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

    Like an Easy Out? Mainly because the bolt broke because it was rusted in place, so very very stuck. Most Easy Out stories seem to be not of success, but of broken Easy Out bits (which are hardened)...

    Googling more - and reading that you can supposedly burn out a bolt that is in cast iron, using an oxy acetylene torch. Anyone done this? I think my neighbor has an OA setup.

    Got it.

    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 have Dremel tips like the one linked. I may have an air die grinder, but I think it's a little too long to fit in the work space.

    I can't grind the remnant flush with the flange surface - 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.

    Thanks. I read that carbide bits are brittle - concern about breaking off the bit in the hole valid, or don't worry about it?

    I won't need to helicoil this, even if I destroy the threads in the...

    Are there metal specific drill bits?

    I didn't get back to the drilling today. I finished up the rest of the work - knock sensors, harness, bunch of gaskets, everything cleaned up and reassembled. ...

    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.

    My neighbor has a welder - but it's a very small stub on the backside of the broken bolt, and access is tight there. So, not likely.

    Thanks. I've been googling and reading up on bolt extraction. I was using oil for lubricant while drilling (PB Blaster, it was handy), but I think I was drilling at too fast a speed. And I think my...

    I could use some advice on removing a broken bolt.
