Help! Bolt broke

7 posts in this topic

If you can get to the bottom of the bolt drill it from the bottom with a bit about 2/3 the size of the bolt and it will most likely screw itself out as you drill, if not you will have to get an easy-out or screw extractor. If you do this be sure to heat the perch with a torch slightly just as you start trying to extract. Also spray it with some kind of penetrating oil before either of these and let it soak for awhile.

You may or may not know that the bolt threads into the clutch perch. If you know this and tried just unbolting it and it still is seized, you should be able to tap it out with a punch and hammer from the bottom. Good luck, may the farts be with you...

It may be worth pricing a new perch. If the price isn't too bad then I would say just remove the other bolt and spread it open with a screw driver or something similar and then open it all the way and peel it off of the bar. Sounds easy, but anyone ever try this?
