Default Stripped exhaust manifold bolts. Need advice

The manifold gaskets were in desperate need of replacement on my 72 Olds. In the process of removal, 2 bolt heads stripped out. Ive been contemplating borrowing a dremel tool and cutting the heads off and using a pipe wrench on the studs.

Before, I start tearing into them that way, has anyone used a more effective way to remove them? Ive seen welding a nut to the head, but have no access to a welder. Is there a bolt out tool you have used effectively, or know of any other method? Any help is appreciated.

Fyi, I've already used pb blaster, and a torch.

I wouldn't grind off the head of the bolt until you've tried everything. Those (Irwin) twist sockets or whatever you call them would be second to last resort. Once that head of the bolt is ground down enough, your options get really limited.

Since you have plenty of room to work, I would get the next closest socket that fits, either MM or standard. Get your yourself a 1LB hammer and beat the socket on the bolt.

If all else fails, use these stud removers. They're the Bentley of stud removers. They go down to the base of the stud and grab it (not the tip) so you don't crack off the stud in the head. Matco, Snap ON make their own version as well.

I've very skilled at the stripping part, not so much the fixing.

I just stripped a lug over the last week because someone handed me the wrong socket size. I learned my lesson on that one, test before you impact. I was able to get a spare lug for free, but I had to junk the socket I hammered on the old lug.

Trying the dremel route, if you were to do that, you'd be there forever, and two probably wear out the dremel and countless cutting heads, so...

I have both Crapsman and Snap-On versions of the bolt -extractors, and they really didn't work well. But maybe I wasn't using them right.

I did and they still stripped. Theyre 9/16" heads and I couldnt fit a 1/2" on it with a hammer. Couldnt find a 17/32 either. Bought the Irwin bolt out set and will give it a shot tnt, with more heat of course

What are you using for heat? I'd use nothing less than a MAP gas torch, Oxy Acetylene would be better! Be sure to heat the area around the bolt and not the bolt itself. If you can get the area red hot that's the ticket.

Just have a little propane torch. Tried the bolt out and didn't work. I see the hole for the bolt goes through the head and can see the bottom of the bolt. Squirted a bit of transmission fluid in there to see if it helps free it up.
