    Good info and works well if fastener isn't rusted/corroded too badly. Not knowing before hand just how well the fastener is "welded" in I would handle the process a little differently. 1: soak with penetrant 20-30 min. 2: rap with a hammer a few time gently. 3: drill completely through the broken fastener if possible. This relieves some of the tension on the threads and will let the penetrant seep up to the threads as well. JM2CW
