I'll need to remove two bolts broken off in the block of my old Volvo,
and would appreciate any recommendations or advice from those of you who
have gone before. I've removed broken bolts before by cutting a slot for
a screwdriver but these are both a thread or two deep into the block.
What else works? What doesn't?
For the rest of the story, I recently had reason to pushstart my '66
Volvo 122S wagon, and the Big Lurch caused the motor to part with the
body on one side. Turns out the motor mount didn't break although it is
old looking; instead the bracket on the block -- which attaches to the
mount, thus to the body -- broke loose. Appears that the top of three
bolts holding the bracket to the block was missing for a quite a while
based on carbon dating of the grease in that hole, and I then broke off
the bottom two bolts in the block. I have a pretty clear shot at the
spot with about 6" of space in front of the broken bolts.
'62 TR4 etc.
