Didnt work. I can't get enough room to force the bolt extractor onto the mangled nut. As of now I think im just going to cut the thing off and pray that I have enough stud visible after removing the manifold to get it soaked for a few days in blaster and grab it with vice grips. I've tried to find someone local that could come weld a nut on to back it out but no luck. I'm also not sure there's room to properly drill it out if that fails so for my skill level I'd basically be screwed at that point.Wahooo wrote: ↑Tue Sep 20, 2022 2:34 pmWith enough Free All/PB Blaster these bolt extractors from HF haven't let me down yet.

With the location of this nut in front/under the manifold pipe I cant figure out any way to grab the stug without taking off the manifold and hoping there's enough stud left to grab afterwards, which is what I'm going to end up trying I think. Once the manifold is out there will be much miter room to get leverage in the stud.
Also, with the cost of labor you might be better off buying a cheap welder.
Found a relative with a welder. Took all of 5min to get it off. Now I get to enjoy hours of putting it all back together. Thanks for all the adviceAS_The_Crow_Flys wrote: ↑Thu Sep 29, 2022 2:43 pmSomething like this might help.
