    Fixing up a 1999 GTX w/broken intake grate bolts

    Well Ive got a ski I'm working on as a project. It had a blown motor in it so I put a new one in and have put a new wear ring and impeller in there. Now I've run into another problem. Who ever owned the ski last must have tried to remove the intake grate and in the process of doing so they bust the head off two of the bolts holding it in place so now I'm at a loss with how to remove those bolts? Any ideas?

    thanks, Oliver

    Your gonna have to drill them
    Out and use an easy out would be my guess try to heat them up first to break the Loctite. Just dont drill too big.

    use a 10 mm open end wrench and then a small pair of vise grips-- works every time on a problem JUST LIKE yours

    what about welding a nut onto the stud and then using that to back it out?
