Henri -- Go to Sears and get this set --


It's called a bolt out kit and they have it in various sizes. I got the 4-piece kit to remove stripped allen-head intake manifold bolts on my '87.

Take one of your bolts with you and get the bolt-out that best fits very tightly over the head.

Just tap it over the head with a hammer and turn it with a wrench. Works brilliantly!

magnificent information from the respected members, as always. much appreciated. it's a flex disc at the tranny, on an '83sd. so there's some sort of flywheel on the driveshaft that makes it near impossible to grind the bolt off or maybe even use the here mentioned tool. I may be able to get a hack saw-blade in there come to think about it. I'll go at it today

Have your friends send you the parts. You can work on it yourself.

How about a thin metal cutting blade on a reciprocating saw?

I just changed the flex discs on the SDL I'm restoring. I think you just may have enough room to pound one of those things on.

AutoZoo stocks a similar kit I saw today as I was searching in vain for a 12mmX1.5 helicoil kit (my SDL has been a case-study in Murphy's Law).

Thats an excellent idea, I think I will do that instead! Thanks!

Since they are bolts, why not just cut them with a cut off wheel? To own an old car you either need a ton of tools, or a nice fat checkbook to pay someone else with tools.

The replacement flex discs come with either hex or allen head bolts.

it's out!!

OK, went to sears, got the set. didn't work because of the flywheel mounted on the driveshaft. I had it soaking overnight in penetrating oil, so after banging on the nut some with a chisel to break the tension on it I had the marvelous idea of using a vice grip

I can't believe I didn't think of that sooner. So now, today, I will finish the Bottom Of my Car:
lower ball joints, tie-rods, center drag link, upper control arms, center bearing, both flex discs, output shaft seal, all brake hoses, stabilizer linkages, rear axles (yes, CVJ), tranny filter and gasket, oil filter housing gasket, oil cooler lines, tranny cooler hoses, all new rotors and pads, front wheel bearings. Guide rod bushings are still perfect.
my god. good thing all that stuff lasted 200k+ miles.
