I sure did!

I've almost never had any luck using bolt or nut extractors. What kind did you use? The kind that has a small drill bit that then lets you insert an extractor?

Some determination and a good pair of locking grip pliers has gotten me through nearly every stripped screw, broken bolt, and rounded nut I've caused. Then again I've never had a bolt break in something nearly as important as a head.

Good luck on getting #2 out!

Luckily, both of these cheap ass bolts snapped above the threads in the head.. I should be able to remove the other one just as easily once I pull the valve cover today.. I started the bolt with some plyers and finished with my fingers! Smile

bwah... you're golden then! If there is a way for a bolt to snap that is the way. You got lucky twice.

But for serious... I don't think you're gonna be so lucky when bolt #3 goes Razz

So now you guys are busting head bolts from all the extra power?

If you had bought a Ford you wouldn't have that problem. Very Happy














j/k of course. Laughing

Haha, no.. Well, kinda.. Broke the bolts by over tightening.. The one I replaced was a manifold bolt.

The head bolts on these cars are monsters.. I couldn't imagining the kind of power it would take to bust those out. You'd probably have to be run over by a tank for that to happen.

Ford's 4.6/5.4 are the same way. The best head gaskets to use are Ford OEM, and either Ford head bolts or ARP studs do the trick to seal them. I don't think I've ever heard of one of these motors busting head bolts, even stock ones.
