Phew, captain thread to the rescue huh? They're always a bit 'iffy' on the phone as to how successful they're going to be...

Is there anything protuding from the head??? You could try your luck with a reverse thread drill bit... i.e. put drill on reverse... as it drills in, it will bite and unthread... a bit safer than EZout IMO...

How'd it break?? How long's it been in there??

Any decent mechanic with a set of snap on easy outs should be able to remove it after soaking the thread with crc :P

Next time use "Never sieze" and dont tighten taper plugs too much as they have a habit of snapping off leaving thread in the hole 8-) :twisted:
