  • How to remove a frozen bolt

    I have this 45hp outboard motor circa 1965. I need to open up the lower part but I can't get all the bolts out.



    I only was able to remove 4 of the 8. Another problem is that the bolts are in a position that will not allow me to use a bolt extractor. How do I remove them?

    Here is a picture of one of the stuck bolts:

    Re: How to remove a frozen bolt

    you have a couple of options:
    1. Soak it overnight with WD40.
    2. If its an all steel assembly you can freeze it with a can of freezing spray.
    3. If there is no danger of combustion and its aluminum assembly you can heat it up with a butane burner.
    4. if all things fail, drill out the bolt head and use an extractor on the thread.

      Thanks but No. 4 is not an option because I would not be able to position the drill inline with the bolt head. I think I'll try the heating method. I've a cutting torch and that should do the trick. I'll of course use a cold flame.

      Any suggestions on dealing with the loose allen head? I'm thinking I might grind down the next size allen key o maybe weld a regular hex bolt.

        space limitations forces me to use the tiktik method. Make a small notch where you may be able tap it to turn with a straight punch. tyaga-tyaga lang.

                  apply WD40 or kerosene (more hazardous and dangerous though)
                  better if its soaked

                  than use power handles

                      Another answer... Use an Impact drive.. set it to counter-clock.. then hammer it..

                        Sir clayfigur is correct ..
                        With the use of below tool with modified head(wrench head) struck it with a hammer, that would solve the problem..

                        *Pyth, this is already the second time that we will be reminding you to post all for sale items on the appropriate thread. There are a lot of possible links that may help the member to do with his problems but not the one which links to a for sale item being sold by you. We do believe that you understand what we mean.

                        But the most effective way i think was to fuse/tig weld a piece of metal on top of it about a foot length so that once you rotate it enduced lever mechanical advantage would do the trick..

                          I agree with Jarod, Pyth. help if you want to help, sell if you want to sell, there are threads for each. I understand that you are the salesman that you are, but some seems misleading... sell, we don't stop you from it...
