Heres my problem, we were replacing the manifold studs on a 1935 WC and one of the studs broke off. We tryed to use an easyout to remove the rest of the bolt and yup you guessed it, it broke. I have looked through the archives and found many fixes for this problem. I have used a diamond bit to grind the end off and now I realize the rest of the easyout will fall into the water jacket of the motor. Will this cause any damage to the motor? Next when I retap the hole will the metal chips from the tap cause problems? Thanks in advance for any help. Mike

Hello, You may want to position a magnet in close proximity to the easyout BEFORE you start to drill. Use a strong enough magnet to pull any pieces to it that are drilled out.Dunno if you've ever tried heating with a torch then dousing with WD-40,but sometimes that'll cause the stuck piece to loosen enough to turn out. When you drill,it's pulling the piece to the right,the way out for the broken easyout.Worth a shot,just don't burn down the tractor!

I'd do an engine flush after you get it back togeather, that will at least get most of the stuff out of the cooling system. I'd use vineagar to do the flush

It's probably not much of a hinderance to the engine to let the small metal particles into the water jacket, but take all measures to prevent it.
If you have a small magnet, you might be able to retrieve some of them.
Only problem I can really see is that some larger chips may get lodged in the water pump.
