Re: [DML] Broken Exhaust Manifold Stud

Be very careful with "easy out" type tools.  If you
break the tool (which is not uncommon) you have a real
problem now.  Most of those tools are hardened, and it
will make the extraction job much more difficult.

Mark's suggestion of lots of penetrating oil (I like
Kroil) for DAYS, and then a reverse drill bit is
probably a safer solution.  

Use a sharp bit, cutting oil, and take it easy.

TAKE YOUR TIME!   Don't rush this job, because a
mistake can be costly.
