    Hey Steven. I'm going to try to drill it out using Jeff's idea.

    You see, I have had that thing on jack stands for almost a year. I have 14 year old twin boys. And they participate in every sport that middle schools do. So I have almost no time to work on the car. I have been doing just about a total top-en upgrade on it. Cam, heads, FAST intake, throttle body, MAF. Just about everything that can be done. And when you know that I'm putting the pulley on, you know that I'm finally getting close to turning the key on that bad boy. So at the very least, I need to try and save it at the stage the car is in now.

    Had a talk with my brother Inlaw today he is very good with motors, build a pretty mean circle track motor, anyhow he said to try a kobalt harden bit to drill and a Good easy out like a Snap On brand,also liked Jeff's idea with the pipe for drilling, don't use a junk easy out for the arp bolt or he said you will be changing the crank...Good luck, I myself would be sick

    Ya, I see what you're saying. If you think you can get it out give it a go.

    Take your time, keep the bit oiled, and Good Luck!

    Ok everyone. I'm having a hell of a time finding extra length left handed drill bits to try and do this on my own. Because of how deep the broken bolt is. The bit is going to need to be at least 6" long. I'm finding extra length drill bits in alot of places, but none of them are reverse cutting. Plus, I'm not finding any long extractors. Do you guys know where I could look?

    You have to find an outfit in your area that carries machine tools, for mill and lathe operations.

    They will likely have everything/anything you'll need.

    But be prepared to spend some coin on a lone bit, as machine tooling can get pricey..
