Tensioner bolt broke off

The first thing you need to do is to think about why the bolt broke in the first place. Was it being turned in the wrong direction? Or was it just really corroded? I've seen mechanics who've been in the buisness many years turn a bolt the wrong way. Anyone can do it. Is any of the bolt sticking out? If so get some "KROIL" it is a release agent of the highest quality. If you can't locate Kroil brand then use something like liquid wrench and spray the bolt right where it goes in. Let it sit then spray it again. I would probably heat the block right next to the bolt with a heat gun if I could do that safely (ie nothing will catch fire). The heat is to expand the junction between bolt and engine block. Then spray the KROIL on the bolt again. Grab the end of the bolt with vicegrip locking pliers to get it out. Make sure to get them on there as tight as you possibly can, and make sure you're turning it the right way to get it out. If the bolt is broken off below the surface you should still spray it with KROIL, but you'll need to drill a hole down the exact center of the broken off bolt down far enough to allow an "easy out." An easy out is a special tool that that has super coarse opposite direction threads that turns in tighter into the bolt as you use it. As you try to turn the easy out further into the bolt, you're actually unscrewing the bolt from the engine block. You'll want to make sure and measure the length needed for the replacement bolt, and take a piece with you to the store to be sure to get the right thread - metric or standard - coarse or fine. And be sure to figure out why the bolt broke in the first place. Good luck

Which direction do you turn the petcock to release the radiator fluid.? I tried this once and it broke off - very expensive! So when you're UPSIDE DOWN, LOOKING UPat the radiator - which direction

Doesn't matter if you're looking up at the petcock or down at it, it turns counterclockwise. You have to visualize looking straight on to the petcock as it fits into the radiator, and rotate the petcock counterclockwise relative to the stationary radiator.

Why doesn't it say the NAME OF THE STREET that you are to turn on? It will tell you how far ahead the turn is and then tell you to turn R or L but it doesn't give the name. Also, there have been several...

I have a tomtom 920, it will say the street name to turn on if set to do so & only then if using computer voices, not human voices. Tuning the wrong direction could be its wrong or its trying to take the fast route via a highway, longer route but get there faster

Hello Bill, i understand your problem, but i think what you will have to do mate is either go to Garmin's website and order a new one as i dont think they would sell the broken item seperately, or go to a local shop that sells Gps equipment and maybe they can help you.
