Stock Moby Ignition "Nut" Removal

How in the fuck do you get these things off? Every single time they are stripped to hell, do you cut them off? Cut slits in them and smash them off? Tell me your secrets!?

For the record on the last av7 I built, I just bought new cases to avoid the issue, now I have like 3 sets of moby cases with ignitions stuck on them

If stripped, just weld a bolt into the hole. Done and done

Though this is a little off track,

If you manage to strip the crank threads, you can drill the crank and tap in a stud that works excellent.

It's easy since the crank isn't very hardened, and the grease hole will center the bit.
