Default Re: BURNS ON BRINK OF MENTAL COLLAPSE

After posting my last response I decided to call my friend who repairs these cars for a living and ask him what he reccomends. To be honest it dosen't look good. His reply was to use the breaker bar and if they don't come of with that you have a problem. The solution is to drill out the heads of the offending bolts and turn them into studs. Once this is done you can use a chisel to carefully seperate the head from the block. Once the head is off and the tension is released the bolt/studs usually come out with vise-grips. He knows cause he did it just last week.



He then asked if you had the special tools to hold the cam sprocket etc.... He can print out the directions if you need them.



In the end you are probobly best off taking it to a specialist.



Sean.

Maybe it's from bizarro land, and the bolts are reverse threaded.



That'd be neato. If it was from bizarro land, not if they were reverse threaded...

Have Boehm work with them for a while...After a bit, those bolts should just leave on their own.

your f**ked.



Get a hammer and good sized punch and whack the top of each bolt. sometimes you get lucky and this breaks them loose. when that doesn't work, get a big, air powered impact and give them hell until the heads round off. An impact socket w/ no extension transfers the most shock. Drill or chisel the bolts heads off and pull the head. Try and take the studs out with a vise grip. When they twist off, grind them flat and drill through whats left. You can try eazyouts, snap-on makes the best, but they wouln't help. Once you drill out the body of the stud, try and peel the thread out of the hole. If that does't work drill tap and Helicoil. If you drill into the water jacket, coat the helicoil in JB weld before you install it to seal the water jacket.



As I said before, your F**ked

Having owned three Jeeps, I've had to deal with Torx bits quite a lot.



In my experience Torx bits are prone to bend their splines under heavy torque. The Torx bits that are two-piece, with a socket that holds the bit, tend to be of better quality than the one-piece Torx socket-bits.



Use an air-powered impact wrench, not electric. High-quality ones can generate much more torque.



If you strip the bolts, I would try drilling them out and using an extractor. They are probably hardened bolts, so you would want to use a colbalt hardened drill bit to drill them out. To make the extraction easier, drill one smaller hole deep into the bolt, then a larger one (but obviously still less than the diameter of the bolt) that's more shallow. This gives the extractor more to bite on.
