Figured out the Amsoil Severe Gear doesn't play well with the D70 LSD, got a scrubbing in a turn under load. I've got a bottle of Mopar additive to throw in it when it quits raining
Someone said to weld a nut onto the bit sticking out...until these recommendations, I was going to drill them out (I have some left handed drills) and easy-out them out.I've had good luck removing broken bolts like that with a torch, get the bolt cherry red and then lightly put the oxygen to it keeping it on the bolt center. The hot bolt will run out usually enough to take a small chisel to tap the remaining of the top ones out. The bottom bolts you'll have to try to melt out most of the bolts and then find something close to the size of the melted hole and unscrew the remaining bolt. Then run a tap through the theads.

I'm going to try the weld trick tomorrow, then heat them hot and see if they would back out.
Those are metric threads correct?
The weld a nut trick works also just let the weld cool before removing and while it's hot and cooling spray with some penetrating oil. Also on the top ones you could probably easy out them and just heat the ears up a little.
The bad thing about easy outs on that small of bolts if it breaks off in there it's harder to heat it up and melt the bolt out. Yes it'll be metric just like all the other bolts on the engine.
I ordered a metric tap and die set and a couple spare taps. I figure I will end up chasing threads and (while I have drawers full of SAE taps and dies) I don't have a single metric tap or die.
The exhaust manifold bolts are m10x1.5 and the small bolts through the rest of the engine (like the timing cover) are m8x1.25), in case anyone else needs that info.
I'm going to try welding a nut on these tomorrow, add a little heat with the torch, and see what happens.
