Damm that was easy! Exhaust stud removal

Broke off the rear exhaust stud, thought i was in for a long hard fight.

PB Blastered it yesterday. Heated it up with torch today, applied force with stud extractor doohickey and bingo out she came.

Picture of the tool and its larger size brother so you can see the left hand grabbing thread pattern.

Cant remember what I paid for this set but i am glad i did, made by Irwin.

PB Blaster is great. Those extractor tools are available at most auto parts and hardware stores, they seem like a real lifesaver. I even used PB on my last brakejob on my car. Even after only 80k miles in FL the rotors were seized onto the hubs, took a lot of PB Blaster and hammering to get 'em off.
