Best tool to remove stripped allen bolt on top of Carb cover
Posted December 28, 2005 - 08:23 PM
What kind of stripped bolt removal type tool will help me get this bolt loose and out?
Like I said I prefer not to remove the carb..although removing the carb would allow me to get the carb and problem bolt head up and onto my work bench so I could get a big channel lock on it and try to loosen it that way, but in the end that may just rip and tear the out side of the bolt head not loosen it.
there must be some drill bit grab tool that craftsman has to bite into the head and unscrew it. At the same time it is a soft metal this bolt and I dont want to drill the head off and make this situation any worse.
any suggestions? need some help.

I can grab it with a nice set of craftsman pliers but they just rub around the head. Hopefully a strong quality pair of vise grips will turn it/ break it loose. I do like the saw a dremel slice in it and try a screw driver approach, sounds plausible. I'll buy a nice vise grip tonight and try that.

good thing I thought I was on the 5th clip But I was on the 4th so I was too lean this cold winter time. I moved it down one spot. should work/better good now.
thanks for the tips.
