Intake Manifold Bolt Hole Welded Shut


Recommended Posts

I was installing my new manifold when one of the bolts broke off half way through. I did the standard drill the bolt out and attempt to retap the hole. Well i drilled to low and had to weld the hole shut so I could redrill the correct position of the hole. I can't for some reason get the bit to catch almost tempted to resort to a diamond tipped bit to see if that would go through. Also the hole was stick welded shut.What should i do to redrill and retap this hole?

      In the October issue of AMN/Counterman, we covered the Automotive Sales Council’s
      link hidden, please login to view – an initiative that aims to reduce the sky-high return rate in the automotive aftermarket. Members of the Automotive Sales Council include representatives from KYB, Dorman Products, FDP Brakes, Motorcar Parts of America, MotoRad and Standard Motor Products. The group developed the “Check the Part” campaign to hit home with counter professionals, who are on the front lines of processing parts returns and weeding out warranty abuse.
      Endorsed by AASA and the Auto Care Association, the campaign’s messaging is simple:
      √ Open the box.
      √ Inspect the part.
      √ Verify the return.
      Recently, Dorman published a return guide for a catalytic converter with integrated exhaust manifold – also known as a manifold converter.
      If a customer wants to return a manifold converter, Dorman recommends these four steps to determine if it’s a valid warranty claim:
      Verify it’s the right part type. Some customers try to return unrelated products and heavy objects as a scam. Verify that the catalyst substrate is intact. If it’s oily, broken or sooty, the vehicle might need additional repair and the converter might not be covered under warranty policy. Verify that the part has been used. A heated-up or used manifold can be red from rust or a blueish color on its outer shell. If it isn’t discolored, it may be new and unmounted, and therefore can be sold again. If it’s a Dorman part, verify the part number. Dorman converters have welded tags or laser etching with part number, so you can be sure it’s the right part in the box. You can download a PDF of the return guide below:

      Hello there.  Apologies if this is the wrong thread.  Please feel free to move...
      Found this manifold (exhaust?) left behind in a storage locker.  Curious what it might be worth and where I might be able to sell it...? Any suggestions? 
      Thanks
