I broke an easy out in a bolt in my boat motor. Impossible to drill. I took
a very small (very small) bit and drilled alot of holes around it (kinda
like cutting it out) until i could get it out. Then I drilled the hole one
size over (because I probably messed up the threads) and put a helicoil in.
This was a bolt for the waterjacket cover and hasn't leaked in about 3
years. Your working on a smaller bolt than I was though.
