exhaust stud snapped, then snapped again
This is on a 96 750 Nighthawk.
Needed to remove exhaust and the one cap came off with a piece of the stud inside. So I got a 7mm extractor socket and snapped it of even lower (no not intentionally). Now only about 3/8 of an in is extended. So I drilled out and am using an internal extractor now. Yes, I've been soaking it all along with pb blaster.
So to the question...Is it OK to hit the cylinder head with a propane torch to try and loosen old rust or whatever and expand around the stud a bit? I mean I know big explosions happen in there but this would not be so evenly distributed as it would be centering on an area. My guess is no problem I'm just over thinking it like I do everything but figured I'd ask.
