I was at the field and had my new 3/8" socket ball hex extension, I was going to tighten me muffler bolts and it snapped off the tip with little force. Now the tip is stuck in the head and at the bottom of the bolt hole about 3" deep. Its on a Century muffler on my gasser. It was the correct size and I thought it would just fall out but it never. I made one flight staying upright in hopes it would vibrate out but never. Anyone have this happen a have a trick to get the tip (broken off ball) out???

Thanks!

You might try a magnut on a stick, Run the magnut into the hole to the broken off tip, latch onto it, and turn and shake the stick to help line up the ball with the groves, and it might come out? Other than that, I don't have a clue!! XGM/VGM
