How do i get this out?

Hi guys, this is a pain! Previous owners have snapped a bolt or tape bit in side the bobbin hole on the swing arm! I bought some expensive drill bits to try drill out so i can re tape it but its not having any of it! I need to get the wheel off the floor to change the Sprockets and disc. Any ideas on how to get this out without taking the swing arm off? Cheers.

Instead of drilling it, have you tried screw extractors?

I stripped screws several times that caused so much panic, but it's quite easy with these extractors. Do not drill the actual frame.

I haven't tried screw extractors no, is it worth trying it?

Re: How do i get this out?

Find a drill bit small enough to poke a hole through the broken bolt. And then find a screw extractor small enough to fit in that hole. Gently hammer the screw extractor into the hole. Now use a tap handle (image attached) to turn counterclockwise. Because of the left-handed flutes on the screw extractor, this pulls the bolt out. Make sure you soak it in some rust out prior to this.

Yes.

Do you have to leave so soon? I was just about to poison the tea.

Re: How do i get this out?

Roll the rear up on some stacked and stepped boards and support the front to help prevent fall-over. Now you can get something under the rear and pull the boards. Whatever is used, has to be stable enough to work on. Having 300+ lbs land on you won't feel good.

I've had good luck with a Sears extractor bit set. They have a more unusual design and are flip'n hard to find though.
