Hey everyone.

98 frtonier 4x4. Not sure of the trim

I Was tracing a coolant leak which brought me to a pipe running under
the lower manifold. I got off both manifolds but the top left bolt by
cylinder 5 snapped at the top by the head. I have about 1-1.5 of stud
sticking out.

Ive tried heating it with a torch, using vice grips, soaking with PB but of
to no avail. The side wards head make it a challenge to get a good grip
and rip with the vice grips.

Any tricks would be much appreciated.

I just now discovered this post... sorry

Sadly I don't have much to offer.
I'd look for some old mechanics to talk to.
I would think try to freeze the stud might help.
Dry ice or nitrogen?

Good Luck.. Don S..

PLEASE >>> A SIG similar to mine can be VERY HELPFUL to all the members!
