I stupidly decided it was time to remove the exhaust just to give everything a good clean and replace the exhaust nuts. You all know what's coming, yep, a broken stud flush with the head.
Well in for a penny etc. so I got everything out of the way, out came the drill and I've drilled it out. Plum centre and finished with an 8mm tap, just like that. No helicoil required.
I'm chuffed.:grin::grin:

Bloody good going. I usually find a hand drill wanders and the job gets more involved:lol:

Brilliant, wish I had the confidence, though when I do manage something like that I'm sure it's mostly sheer luck!:lol:

The knack is NOT to try and use a ordinary drill to start the hole. And get n accurate centre punch ark to start with. Then go on to a centre drill bit (these can be had in small sizes for very accurate work although they can be fragile). After that a good quality drill bit or two will finish the job but don't skip on the quality bit....

when I have done them in the past I start with small dia drills and just work up to the tapping drill size. it seems to work ok. as xman says the key is getting it started in the centre of the stud/bolt.

Centre drills are very stiff though unlike fine dia drill bits are not. You can do it with those but a small centre drill will beat it every time.

Don't run them too fast; circa 1000 rpm is sufficient. Helps with control too.

If the nut or stud is stuck, I go direct to map gas gun and get the studs red hot with two nuts tightened up on them., don't try quenching with oil and so on they just tighten up, take them out when they are glowing hot.

Is that one made from gas? So it's not as heavy as normal guns? A super light one?

For me if it is below a 5-6mm bolt that has sheared off or stuck then a full drill out would be my preferred option.

Anything over that I would tend to drill and tap a hole in the sheared off bolt and then screw in a bolt tighten up two nuts together. Spray with penetrating fluid overnight and then try again in the morning. This only works if it has not sheared off flat with the casing.

A Zeus book is your best friend.
