bent frame slider

i went down this weekend at Jennings and my frame slider wore all the way down and bent the metal mounting piece. I cannot turn the allen bolt at all.

How can I go about getting this off and the engine mount bolt out???

I had to cut off my frame slider using a grinder type tool, then used a vice grip to turn the bolt out, with the 1 inch of bolt left remaining, was a pain in the ass.

Your case sounds somewhat different, a picture would be helpful

NESBA - Seems to be missing, can someone direct me where to find it?

If you can get it down to just the bolt (without the head) you should be able to take it out with a reverse drill bit. (probably not the right name... it's when the spiral is the opposite direction.) Make sure you get smaller than the actual bolt so you don't mess up the threads.

Note... I have not tried this myself but know people who have. I would wait for confirmation from someone else to make sure though.

Pics would definitely help too.

Namaste

To the times I'll never remember, with the friends I'll never forget.

Use a die grinder and cut the puck off. then you will be able to grab the bolt.

All you have to do is follow three simple rules. One, never under estimate your opponent (mentality). Expect the unexpected (could work out in your favor). Two, take it outside(or to a table). Never start anything inside the Bar unless it's absolutely necessary. And three, be nice.
