Broken Brass Block Drain Bolt

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Any tips on getting the broken piece out of the block drain hole? I have an 1/4 extractor in there currently… before I twist too hard in fear of breaking it as well? The extractor socket set I bought won’t fit. I may need to get an adjustable tap socket… then twist slowly. 2015 Indmar monsoon

Hard to tell from the picture how big that nut is but I always try to use the largest extractor I can. 

that said, this is bronze, so a good soak in pb blaster and your 1/4 inch may be perfect.

I have been trying to turn this pretty hard and it sounded like it’s moved slightly… I can hear it like it is trying to turn by very slight creaks … I have putting a ton of pressure on it by hand… also trying to make sure i don’t break it. I’m not sure penetrating fluid can make it in? Any thoughts?

Usually if you can get a thread to squeak it is as good as out.  Sop a little PB on there and take it out.

sprayed liquid wrench on it and let it sit.. 

Seems like the easy out keeps going further in when I am turning it left to remove the brass bolt - any ideas?
