Is there a way to get them out? The allen key part is stripped rendering the tool useless.
Yea thats what I did for one of them. I hammered it on, and it came out. Now its stuck in the socket and not coming out, so I cant get the last one of the head bolts out.p10det said:you might be in a pickle hear. i hope you were useing a 10 mm allen socket. and some times you have to tape the socket in all the way.
well the only idea i have for you is to take a hammer and pound a 12piont socket on the out side f the bolt or strip nut soket and hope it grips.
My way took far less time. Granted Im sure it would be less expensive to drill it out, but isnt time money anyways? Its the most expensive thing we have. Once spent, you cant get it back. Money you can.Yahnozha said:Oh one more thing....if you do strip the head bolt and cant get it out, loosen all the others, then drill the head off the offending head bolt...once it breaks off, you will hear a loud *POP*, remove all the other bolts pull the head and the bolt will just screw out by hand with no tension on it anymore.
