    I think we were all thinking you were talking about a V8. Appearantly, you weren't. Why can't you drill out the bolt and use an extractor?

      Now that the flange issue is settled... Are the bolts hardened? Can I drill this one out?

      Tim, that's my question exactly! But CAN I? If the bolt is hardened steel, can it be drilled?

        You know fellas, thanks but nevermind. I'm going to deal with this engine when I get to Charlotte. Anyone want a '62 sedan? It's a nice basic car. Straight, very little rust.
        I forgot to mention;[:I] You guys have been great! Thanks for your patience with my ignorance.

          You should be able to drill out the broken bolt just fine.

            As Jeff says, even if the bolt is "hardened" - grade 8 or whatever, with a good, sharp COBALT bit and some drilling lube, you should be able to go thru it.

            Frankly, I'd trust the 5 good bolts to soldier on for years without a problem.[^]

              Well, I may or may not hang on to the engine. It still runs. and sounds good. All of the hang-ons need replacing or fixing. Still, the most expensive part really wants to cooperate. If this motor can get Pick-a-truck a new home, so be it. Likewise with the little '62 sedan.
              A hard decision to let go, one that has to be made nonetheless.

              Thanks again for everyone's suggestions, patience, and help.

                You guys are the experts (and I'm not being a smart ass) but for the record and (MAYBE) technically speaking a "bolt" which threads into a tapped hole is NOT a bolt at all but a cap screw. Bolts use nuts and if a fastner threads into a tapped hole it is a cap screw. Maybe that clarification would have eased the uncetainity with the original question and then again maybe not! And I'm not trying to be a wise guy.
