    Icon8 504 water pump-help needed

    further to my earlier post on this, and despite soaking the thing in penetrating fluid for two days, and lots of gentle tapping before I touched it, the long bolt on the water pump (the one at the top) sheared off at the first try, it was like the bolt was made of plastic it broke so easily....

    anyway i guess the options now are to try and drill the thing out or use some kind of extractor tool (which i dont have). any advice appreciated.

    thanks

    Default 504 water pump

    Drill it out and tap it. size is 7 x 1 but you can go to 8mm, you can also use a bolt instead of a stud as long as you drill out the water pump housing to suit.
    Have fun Pete

    I am gunna get another 403 on the road........one day

    Is there any stump left to get a stud extractor on?

    This is infinitely preferable if you can do it. Drilling and tapping is going to be difficult to get on centre without setting up the head in a drill press, methinks.
