I need to find a way to remove a metal bolt that broke off inside of my tilt steering pivot pin.
I've tried drilling and heating the metal with a torch and then drilling but that hasn't given much yield either.
Would air tools be stronger than an electric drill? Are there any chemical methods or techniques that I could try?
This really is an emergency as I'm running out of time to get this done. Thanks in advance to you all.
**Update: These are pictures I just took today:
This is my self-made pivot pin puller with the pin attached. I've used this to take out one of the two pins. You can get an idea of how it works -
This is the good pivot pin after removal. Note the threads on the inside-
now this is the pivot pin still in the steering column. This one has about 1\4 of an inch of depth that I've been able to drill into.
Now my plan is to have the pivot pin puller that I made welded into the pivot pin, and then use that to pull it out. My neighbor with his welder says that its probably not a good idea. What do you guys think?
Basically it would look like this but welded:
