Default Re: Broken Starter Bolts and Cap

You can go to sears and get a stud extractor tool, I looks kinda like a socket which grabs the broken bolt and when you turn it with a ratched it grips the opposite way to grip tighter on the busted bolt. I picked one up for about 20 or so dollars and works great. oops not a stud, looks like a drill and a easy out - Hell for that matter a new starter is what I would do. looks to much like work in my book and a new starter is better anyway.

There had been a couple responses considering and explaining rebuilding it, but actually it'* fine. The only thing that'* wrong with it from the previous owner, is that one of the bolts holding the selenoid busted. Sure, I'll just grab some new ones......

But damn, there seems to be a little problem. I can't get the remainder of one of the bolts out of the track for it. It'* broken off just small enough so I can't remove it with a plyers. I don't really know any other way to get it out, and I figured you guys would have some pretty decent ideas.

There'* a little room underneath it, so maybe I could get something in there and twist it out, but I don't really know how I'd get that done.

(sorry it'* a little blurry)

Thanks for all and any responses!
