removing power steering

so im getting ready to pull my 2.8 out of my 86 s10

now i have most things disconnected now
just some questions


i broke off all the exhaust bolts, where the exhaust meets the exhaust manifold
now this allowed me to get the exhaust off so thats good
but now what should i do when i wanna reinstall?

should i drill out the hole? and then maybe use a nut next time?
any ideas?


also im havin a hell of a time getting the pressurized line on the power steering off

i tried at both ends, and it seems like the nut is in between sizes
ive tried metric and imperial wrenches, but they just wanna round the nut
any ideas how to get it off?

only other thing i thought to do was to keep the whole power steering pump on the truck, like take the whole thing off the motor

Re: removing power steering

there is no idea to remove the pump. just unhook it from the motor and lay it to the side

Re: removing power steering

I second that. Then you don't have to find hose or get fluid every where is you need to turn the wheel.

On the manifold drill out the bolt with a smaller drill size and somtimes the bolt will turn or you can get most if it them pick the rest out and save the threads. Or if you have taps, drill it dead center a smaller size and tap it out.

If I acted like some of the people here do and ran to someone when ever my feelings were hurt I would have been called a sissy and then ridiculed for that as well. I suppose I just grew up in a time when we were all tougher and turned out to be men and women instead of staying crying children.

Re: removing power steering

I atke it your going to rebuild the motor sinse you have it out,so let the machineshop worry about getting the busted bolt out.Without clamping the head in a drillpress or have a clamp on drill ,99 time out of 100 you'll make a mess.Now if you have bolts sticking out that you can get a hold of with visegrips,find someone with a torch and heat up the heads and turn them out.

You don't need to read between the lines. He broke the bolt that holds the Y pipe on the manifold. The the manifold to head bolt. How could he drill it and use a nut as he put in his post.
