e50 head bolt broken - how can i remove it?

Luigi Garzone /

Broke one of my e50 head bolts by over tightening like an idiot. The bolt is stuck in the engine case real good, tried a few different things to remove it but it just won't spin. Any suggestions?

Soak it with pb blaster, warm up the case next to it up with a propane torch, repeat a few times.

A good sturdy pair of vice grips should to the trick.

If not maybe you could jb weld a nut onto the stud and wrench it out.

I have my doubts. But it won't hurt to try.
