u'll probably have to drill it out...

i dont know too much about these kind of bolts, but the usual way to get broke bolts out is to drill them out, tap them, and unscrew them out....

the head broke off the bolt holding the body to frame, we can lift the body off the fram but will not be able to get new bolt in until old one comes out. We are planning on putting the rest of the lifting blocks in and grabbing it inbetween the body and fram with vise grips.

dont use a hammer, it will mess up the threads. maybe just get a new washer/nut from ford.

can you heat it up then grab it with vice grips and turn it out?
