Crank rear seal plate removal?

I've about got the block completely stripped down to be sleeved for the Fordota but EVERY SINGLE FRIGGIN' SCREW but one on the rear plate is stripping. They're 8mm and I've been trying to use a 6 point socket and they just round off. Tried using the Craftsman screw extractor and it won't fit completely over the head.

Anybody got any suggestions?

Nestep is to break out the grinder and grind the heads off and hope I can get the leftover screws out with vice grips.

Just get a bunch of cheap 8mm sockets at harbor freight and weld them bastards to the bolts. Then back them out with the impact gun.... that is if your patient welder, and a good one.

Try a 5/16 six point. When you put it on tap it a few times with a hammer then try to back it out.

Weld a nut on the bolt head is my suggestion.

Yes, a 5/16 or 1/4 nut, where you can weld the top of the head to the inside of the nut for more strength.

That's crazy, striping? When I pulled my plate off the old motor it was covered in oil. Good luck Danny

Try an EZ-Out. Drill the appropriate size hole, insert the EZ-Out and turn the EZ-Out counterclockwise with a wrench.

You may also try heating it up a little.

i would weld on a bolt or socket before EZ-out seeing as you can always try the EZ out after you weld on a bolt.

Re: Crank rear seal plate removal?

90% of the time you can take a brass drift and smack the head of the bolt, relieving the stress on the threads and it will turn right out. If that doesn't do it, heat the bolt up till it's almost red-hot, then squirt some pb blaster on it, let it cool and then it should come out.
