Angry Broke EGR Bolt :doh::doh:

I took my EGR valve off today to clean it out. Got it off not to bad cleaned it up and went to put it back in. Stupid me went to tighten down the two small bolts with a big 1/2 drive ratchet and snapped the head off the passenger side bolt. . I don't know what I was thinking. I got the driver side in nice and snug and the valve it seated properly. I started the truck up and can't feel a leak but I can hear what sounds like a boost leak when I drive it. My question is how in the hell can I get the bolt out and what are the part numbers for the EGR bolts so I can get a new one. Any other advice is appreciated.

Reverse style drill bit

Go to any local bolt suppliers (Fasteners/Fastenal)

Or probably something like NAPA would have it...

Just explain the situation to them and they will understand!

Thanks. I'll see what I can do. I'm just so pissed that I did that. I should know better. Especially while working on a 6.0, you have to be super careful.

If you get a turbo hardware kit 3C3Z-9T514-AD it'll include a bolt for the base of the feed tube. That bolt should double as an EGR valve bolt.

I know exactly how to get that bolt out, you don't have access to a mig do you?

I'll call Ford tomorrow about the replacement bolt. If your talking about a Mig Welder I don't have access to one. I think I'm going to try a reverse drill bit and see where it takes me.

Gah! You have my condolences. I spent about an hour unsticking something stuck yesterday. Unsticking is worse than finding the replacement part. When you go out to buy a replacement bolt, be sure you bring the bolt from the other side with you, so you'll know you're getting the right one (same thread, same length, same head).
