Just hoping some own can help me with ever reoccurring problem. I’m pulling down an engine that has not been looked after in the coolant department (and others). Hence the studs are badly pitted and one has broken (see attached photo). Has anyone got a successfully method of removing these stud? I also have another case where they have helicoiled every head stud. As a result one of the studs will not pull up to torque. On an air cooled engine I would normally use a case saver. However they are much larger in diameter then a helicoil and would require narrowing the barrel seating surface. What are people doing to repair damaged thread on head studs? Any comments would be appreciated.
PS. Have a Happy New Year
