m_removing_pipe_nipple_from_water_pump_for_clearance.jpg
322 viewsBefore I had a chance to use the crappy extractor that broke off ,I had to remove this pipe nipple from the water pump to give me access to drill the broken bolt.
m_broken_extractor_end_and_extracted_bolt.jpg
303 viewsNow these are the extractors you want to use,even if you end up breaking of the end that goes into your socket, you can still use them,simply insert the extractor further into your socket.
One other note, the extractor shaft is 1/4" do not attempt to use a 1/4" drive ratchet,you will break your gear,Use a 3/8" drive & socket that is reduced to 1/4" you may need a leverage bar like we did, but it worked.
