Argh... 98 GSXL intake grate bolt broke (HELP!)
Leading edge (ones that go into the hull) intake grate (stock) bolts broke off.
I used a torch on them, i thought long enough, and started to back them out and after not even 4 turns of the wrench, they both snapped off. Any ideas on what I could do on these?
Are these safe to drill and use an extractor on? Seem pretty soft so I don't know what good that is going to do...
Next question is... what size bolt are these? thread wise....

I trust that you discovered that those bolts go all the way through the hull to a nut that is right under the PTO?
If they break all you do is pull the silicone out of the way and take them out with a 10mm socket.
